OHH Challenge #1 – Stella!

For our first ever One Hundred Hats Challenge, I’m asking that you knit up Stella hats!

This free pattern works up super fast, using only knit, purl, and k2tog stitches. It’s a great hat for a beginner to work on, because you practice working in the round, decreasing, and you still don’t have to know too much to get through it!

Between now and December 31st, knit through as many Stella hats as you can, and post each one to the One Hundred Hats Flickr Group. Each picture of a new hat will receive one entry into the contest, so if you make more than one hat, post them separately (I won’t count multiple pictures of the same hat as more than one entry)!

The Stella hat pattern can be downloaded free via Ravelry, or you can find the PDF for free on Knitting School Dropout’s blog for those of you who don’t yet Ravel.

Once you finish your hats, send them on to Warm Woolies:

As for the prizes. I’m currently talking to several independent yarn-dyers about getting some amazing skeins of yarn to you guys as prizes, and I’ll be posting info on each of those as I get the okay. So for now, just know it’ll be yarn, and hopefully a lot of it!

There will be at least one winner, but the goal is to have three or four at least, so get to knitting. {also, I may or may not feature some of the finished hats here on the blog as you get them posted, so be on the lookout for some great community work, hopefully coming soon!}
