Graham hat.





I’ve finally finished my exams and final papers, so I can start sharing some of my Christmas knitting! First up is this hat I made for my friend L. I’ve had my eye on this pattern for awhile and I’m really pleased with how it turned out. I shortened the ribbing by 1″ but added an extra inch of the broken rib pattern to make up the length. It feels a bit early for Christmas gifts but since L is going away with his family for the holidays, I wanted to make sure he got his gift before he left.

Have you finished your Christmas knitting yet? Or are you like me, frantically knitting until Christmas eve?

Linking up with KCCO and Yarn Along.


  1. That’s a great guy hat. And, I’ve been meaning to tell you (but figured you were really busy with school work) that there is a knitting group that meets every week on campus in the GSU building (16 Bancroft St. is the address, I think). It was started by grad students, but everyone is welcome. It’s Thursday night from 6-7 in the downstairs lounge. I am the “captain” of the meeting (meaning I get the coffee ready), so you should stop by if you have the time!

    • Oh, I had seen a poster for that on campus awhile ago but thought it was only for grad students!
      I’m away until after Christmas but I will definitely drop by in the new year! Sounds like so much fun- I’ve always wished there were a knitting group on campus.

      • There’s a Facebook group for the UTGSU Knit Wits that you can join to stay up to date. I’ll let you know if the meeting time changes next semester. I think there will be a big Knit Night event coming up in January, too, which should be a good time as well.

      • Great- will do 🙂

  2. How very nice and thoughtful of you, I bet he loves it!

    • Thanks Christina! How is your holiday knitting going?

  3. Nice that you could already share some holiday knits! Lovely hat and it looks like a perfect fit. The recipient looks very pleased with it as well 🙂

    • Thanks! I’m also glad he liked it so much 🙂

    • Glad to hear it’s not just me 🙂

  4. Great hat!
    I’ve been busy with end of term stuff too, so I’ll definitely be knitting up until the wire!
