She should not know...


This hat is perfect for my five year old daughter. Please don't tell her that was totally unintentional and that she is really getting it because is too small for me.


Dreiecke was designed by Shannon Cook of Very Shannon. I have been following Shannon's blog for a long time. Her transformation from blogger to knitting and sewing designer, author and entrepreneur is admirable.

My modifications:

Read carefully if you want to knit a kids hat. Ignore in any other circumstance. 
  • I did not check my gauge 
  • I casted on ten more stitches than recommended to compensate knitting with DK instead of worsted weight yarn. The arbitrary number of stitches just seemed right. 
I would love to knit this pattern again. Next time, hopefully, for me.

    1. The texture is amazing. And the hat knits itself; super fast...especially kid's sizes :-)

  6. My lips are sealed. That is a wonderful hat! I don't think she would mind that it was originally planned for you-actually that may make her want it more. :)
