Handmade Design by Jeannie Phillips ~ Southside, AL
A dear, dear friend of mine lost her house 9 days ago!!.... Just broke my heart...when I ask what I could do for her she ask for a scarf and hat for when she rides her horses... she wanted the bright.... this is what I made for her... so excited about how I made the stitches match... I did 2 rows of knit and 2 rows of purl on the scarf for 12 pegs until it was 5 1/2 feet long... I did it on my largest round loom... The toboggan was done on my Knifty Knitter round loom...I did 2 purl 2 knits and repeated until the end of the round for 10 rows with one strand of yarn..then I added a second strand of yarn and changed my pattern to 2 knits 2 purls, so that when you folded the brim up that the stitches would match...since the brim folds up on the hat instead of upon itself I had to do more rows on the hat... I did a total of 37 rows past the brim...the last 5 rows I did with one stitch so that when I gathered the hat it it would be less bulky.
Thanks so much for looking!
