Cast On

I have decided that knitting from a pattern is an act of faith. At least it is an act of faith for me, as I have so little knitting experience that I cannot picture what any given step will turn out like. This also means that I have no idea if I did it right until it is done! I just started at the beginning of the pattern, and when I got to the end... I stopped! I didn't even try to figure out if I was going to be able to figure out the next step, I just jumped in. Kind of an adventure, I must say.

And it is done. I just sewed the button on my very first piece, knitted fully from a pattern, and not improvised from a stitch book. I quite like it, and plan to make more.

The pattern is called Calorimetry, and it is free on Ravelry.

Great job! I love these, it is a super pattern. I have made these smaller for Kaylee by casting on less stitches.
Patterns are good!

O.K. but what is it? Sorry, I don't knit and I'm not quite sure I recognize it. Is it something to keep the head warm?

Ha! Yes, it is, like a bonnet, only it buttons in the back.

Hey - good job, Katie! I love it! We can wear our together while we eat lasagna and drink peppermint patties this fall.
