Ma's Hat

There is some yarn left after knitted my ma's cardigan. She asks me to knit a hat for her as pictured. This is a free pattern given along my purchased shawls and scarves book at Nov 2005. I usually crochet the hat for this is much easier and this is my first time to knit a hat. This is a good chance for me to practice my skill.

I have a wish in my mind, that is to knit a lace shawls with lace weight yarn. I always worry that it is hard for me and cannot finish it. When I read through some lace shawls patterns, some require high level of knitting experience. Still work hard to search some simpler and easier one.

You may want to try the Flower Basket Shawl. I'm going to knit this for the knitting olympics. The pattern is here:

From the looks of it, the pattern does not seem to be too complicated. Basically, lace is simply a combination of knit stitches, purl stitches, yo's, ktog's and psso's. I know it can be intimidating at first, but just remember that all you are doing is varying combinations of the stitches I mentioned above.

Good luck & let me know what shawl you decide upon.
