One for All beanie..



Finally finished my 1x1 ribbed beanie....
I had to fight the urge to throw it in the WIP pile several times. Let's face it 1x1 is just not fun but thankfully it was mindless enough that I could keep track of the kids and still accomplish a row here and there.

Happy to be done and the best part is, it's really an All for one hat. That's the genius of 1x1 ribbed. It will conform to most any head,  as you can see from all the kids and me modeling it.

 I cast on 104 on US size 5 circs  with worsted and did 1x1 rib f-o-r-e-v-e-r...
    When decreasing to keep the pattern I knit 3tog until 6 stitches were left
    Then fastened off.

      Oh and in case you are wondering.. from top left to right..

I joked to the hubby we needed one more kid so that I wouldn't have to be in the pic to even it out..
The scary part was he said OK..Ummm I was joking..
