A few months ago, I was asked by a friend if I could knit him a beanie looking like one he bought online. Of course I said yes! Obviously the one bought online had been made by a machine so the result was going to be different to the one I was going to knit. After a lot of thoughts, some discussions with my mum, numerous tries, calculations, I finished it!
Yes I made it without using a pattern, so I had no idea how it was going to be in the end, but I have to admit I'm happy with myself because I calculated the right amount of stiches from the start, the problem came with the diminutions at the end of it. But I made it!
I've been thinking of making more and sell them on the website. I have some wool left so I will make some, but that will be it as it takes too long to knit. I will knit and sell in priority the thicker beanies like the ones I've made at the beginning of the year.
ps: the beanie is offered without the sparkling ears. ;p
