This morning I decided to try and use my brother KX-350 home knitter knitting machine to make a baby blue child’s hat with a pom-pom. I could not find any patterns so I made this one up from looking at various videos online. For this hat I used 70 hooks and for the brim I knitted 50 rows then folded it over onto itself then continued knitting up to 90 rows. For the hat brim I set the tension dial at five then for the rest of the hat I set the tension dial at seven. I still need to work a lot on the seaming part but overall it turned out OK.
I made this for a colleague’s daughter and she loves it! I used two skeins of Yarn Bee Surprise Yummy white. I used two different hooks and a basic poncho starter pattern diagram I found online. I did a simple double crochet stitch border and for the collar I did a simple single crochet stitch for about 6 rows. Then I added a pompon to complete it.
