Flower Pot

Well if you use your imagination it looks a bit like a flower pot doesn't it?

So pleased that you all liked the Stash Basket hat, but don't squabble over it ladies please! I'm tempted to make a big one for me so that I can stay warm in the winter. It wouldn't look too silly would it? People round here are quite used to seeing me wearing strange knitted things, I'm sure a woolly basket hat complete with mini balls of wool would only confirm their suspicions of me!

As to a pattern? Oh please! I made it up as I went along. I think it was something like this though:-

Cast on 28
Moss stitch for 12 rows
Purl 1 row
Stocking Stitch 6 rows
Knit 2 tog to end
Purl 2 tog to end
Gather centre sts, sew up seam.
Fold over lip and sew down to make the top of the basket.

For the balls of wool, use tiny needles (I used 2mm) and cast on 6 sts. Stocking stitch 12 rows, cast off, roll up and sew down ends. Wrap piece of white yarn round middle to look like a ball band. Make 5 balls and sew in place.

OK? Let me know if you make one, I'd love to be a real proper designer. Perhaps I could make a book for Innocent on tiny woolly hats. Mini woolly hats take over the world....

We weren't fighting over the stash basket hat - I just think you should give it to ME, that's all!

Your hats should definitely be winners of "hat of the week" over on the Innocent website!

I may even try a few humble hats myself!
