Anemone Hat #2–Knitting FO


As soon as I finished knitting my first Anemone Hat, I simply couldn’t wait to cast on another!

But what a bummer - my conservative little teenage friend loved my hat but picked Oxford Gray yarn for hers. Oxford gray, seriously? “Trust me,” she said.


So here’s her hat in Lion Brand Wool-Ease worsted. This is the “Everyday Anemone” version of the hat, with picot-edged but non-Moebius brim.



She didn’t want the Moebius brim, but she did want the picot edging as shown in the “Arctic” version of Cat Bordhi’s Anemone hat pattern.

Since the picot edging instructions are only given as cast-off for the Moebius brim, I used this tutorial from Heidi Bears to cast on the 5-stitch Twisted Picot edging:

And now that it’s finished, it really does look cute – maybe she was right?



I just love knitting these hats! Thank you, Cat!
