I wasn't completely forthcoming in my last post about knitting, I did finish a first project before starting the socks, I just couldn't post about it because it was a Christmas present for the boy and I wanted it to be a surprise.
I decided to start with something with a bit more chunky yarn and bigger needles to get the hang of knitting and purling a bit more before embarking on socks, so decided to knit this beanie. I followed the pattern almost exactly, just adding in 5 extra rows where it suggests you check the size of the hat. It was very straight forward and the instructions very clear and it came together very quickly.
