I’m finally ready to share two of my latest knitting projects, a knitted “Helmet Hat” from a Vogue Knitting pattern and a knitted “Backseat Passenger Cowl” from a free Amy Castillo pattern on Ravelry.
I used size 8 circular knitting needles and 1 skein of Lion Brand Wool-Ease in Mink Brown.
I followed the pattern as written, but modified the side pieces slightly. As the pattern was written, I thought they would be too tall and floppy.
Here’s what I did:
After the textured rib pattern repeat, work row 1 again.
Next row: K1, p2 *ssk, p2* repeat from * to *, end with k1. 25 stitches total.
Next row: P1, k2tog, *p1, k2tog* repeat from * to *, end with p1. 17 stitches total. Bind off.
I used size 8 circular needles and 2 skeins of Lion Bran Wool-Ease in Mink Brown.
I followed the pattern as written except for 2 minor things: I casted on 144 stitches instead of 157 and I added 1 additional knit & purl round repeat.
I love how this pattern is reversible! Each side has a different look due to the number of purl stitches. One is a bit chunkier.
