You may remember that I am knitting 100 hats from 100 different patterns. Last week I was traveling and visiting with family. I knew that if the pattern had any complications I would probably end up doing a lot of knitting and ripping. I wanted a pattern that was simple enough to remember so I wouldn't have to check the pattern very often.
I had been looking at the pattern Ribbed Cap by Judy Gibson for awhile. It is a basic Ribbed Hat or watch cap. As I read the pattern more closely, I saw that there were two variations. The first is a garter ridged beanie.
It is the first one I knitted and I really enjoyed it. It is always easy to tell where you are and easy to remember.
The second one is the basic ribbed cap. It is longer and with a brim and a simple k2p2 rib.
She also gives a great tip about changing colors on a ribbed cap.
These were #27 and #28 of 100. I am really enjoying trying different patterns. The only downside is when I find a pattern I really like, I have to set it aside and move on to a new pattern. There are a number of patterns I have really enjoyed and will certainly come back to later. This pattern, in both its variations, will definitely be one of those.
