Red poppy hat
I still have this stashbusting obsession. So I gathered al my red(-ish) yarns and knitted this hat, that I call the Red poppy hat. I didn't use a pattern, just tried something. It's the second hat I've knitted, the first one was Knitty 's Vinter Lue, which was a horrible disaster, probably because I used a very different yarn. Too bad, because I still like the pattern. I've seen a lot of great hats on the internet that I would like to knit. But I'm afraid I will never wear them, because I don't have a hat-head. And I don't like to wear something on my head, only when it's freezing cold.
Because I used a few different stitches it was fun to knit the hat. What I would do different the next time are the decreasings. They didn't turn out nice. Perhaps it would have been better if I'd started decreasing a little later/higher and then instead of 3 times, 6 times in a row.
The combination of colours is one of my favourites, red/aubergine/burgundy. Brown/(light-)blue is another combination I love.
