My First Hat and Socks

So I finally taught myself how to make a hat a few weeks ago, and that's the first one, I ever made. And as I usually do, I just made up my own pattern as I went.

I also made a pair of socks and a little wristband(not pictured) to go with the hat, because I had a TON of left over yarn.

Here's the pattern for the hat:

Lace Hat:

Note:This version was made for a head approx. 22".

Yarn:I used a discontinued Lion Brand Yarn, but any worsted weight will work. The color was Pastel Pink.
Needles: 1 US8/5mm Cable needle(I used 36", but a 24" should work)

Please correct me if anything doesn't make sense or the numbers don't match up.


You can call me Isi. No, it's not my real name, but since I don't give out my real name on the internet, that's the best you'll get.
I'm an avvid knitter, and I'm constantly coming up with new patterns. I'm horrible at following patterns, though I do try.
I'll be posting my creations, and the patterns that go with them; as well as posting updates on some of the more time consuming projects.
Hopefully soon I'll be posting some of my more recent patterns and the pics to go with them.
