Felicity Hat51

Just the other night, after I posted on my blog about Wanett Clyde's Felicity Hat, I was pouting pouting pouting because my hands hurt so bad that I could not knit. I had my worsted weight yarn ready to go and everytime I passed by it I would lament my miserable state of non-knitting being. And the gates of doom opened... I lamented the fact I couldn't knit, lamented the fact that the weather had been BLAH lately, lamented the fact that the yarn Karabella Breeze was absolutely not talking to me...DANG BREEZE!!!

And then, dear reader... BOOM..! It hit me. Hit me hard. Wait a minute... Karabella Breeze... and the Felicity Hat pattern... SWEEEEEET!!!! I looked at my hurting hands and said: "You wanna hurt me? You wanna hurt this knitter? Not tonight. I got a Felicity Hat to knit. You understand?'

Modifications

Wanett Clyde's pattern calls for worsted weight yarn, and the Karabella Breeze that I used is more of a light DK weight pattern. So modifications were necessary! Instead of casting on 70 stitches I casted on 91 stitches.  QUESTION: Why 91 stitches, Nancy? ANSWER: When I read the pattern, I noticed that in the first increase round, the pattern tells you to K7, M1 to the end of round. So the pattern works with intervals of 7!  So all I have to do is add with multiple of 7. I chose to add 7x3=21 stitches more.

Soooo...70 + 21 = 91!

Other than using a much lighter weight yarn and therefore casting on more stitches, I did not change anything else. I followed the pattern exactly and it all worked out fine!

LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOOOOOOVE IT!

I love this pattern so much, I immediately casted on for another one with some golden mercerized cotton I had in my stash. Yes a whole CONE that I am working from. Delicious.

The pattern is so incredibly easy, just straight stockinett in the round, some increases, some decreases and there you have it, a stylish hat...easy does it. Really.
