FO Friday: Felicity

If you haven't been able to tell so far, I really love making hats. They're awesome! Super quick to knit, almost always fit, and just great gifts. I also love to wear hats. The trouble is, I almost alway end up giving them away as great gifts. In my knitting lifetime, I've probably knit over twenty hats. Do I own a knit hat? Of course not.

So being the sneaky knitter that I am, I wore Felicity out the day I finished it before giving it away to a friend. I was able to get a few snapshots with me modeling the hat with my SO. It's really a quick knit, and I made this one out of Berraco Lustra. I'm working on one now with a little less slouch (more beanie-esque) for me to keep. (Maybe, we'll see how that goes..)

Isn't he handsome? (The boy, not the hat)
Bleh, beer breath

  1. I love it! How many knitting needles did it take? I'm just learning and might venture to 3 needles next.

    1. It took actually five, there are a lot of increases at one point, and even then the end stitches where slipping of the needle because the Lustra is so slippery. I would reccommend a circular needle for this one.
