Tychus hat and new project February 4, 2006

So here’s Dad’s birthday present, ready to go:

The pattern for the hat was “Tychus” from Knitty. But I used only a single strand of yarn instead of double as the pattern calls for, because I couldn’t see anyone in Seattle wearing a hat that warm. Which meant a great deal of fussing and redoing to get the size right. I think I cast on about 42 stitches and the shortest short row was 22 st. And I made a scarf to go with it (48 inches long, circular needles, garter stitch). The yarn was Andean Silk from knitpicks–so-o-o nice to knit with.

Here’s a view of the hat from the top (sorry it’s blurry):

And here’s what I just started–something for ME finally! Neck-down, v-neck, raglan, shaped cardigan (no cute name, pattern from “Knitting Pure and Simple”), in a darker green heather than the picture:

Hi
I am doing the Tychus hat for the first time and this might sound stupid but is this hat knit in 4 pieces or is it continued as one piece. I finished the first panel and don’t know if I am suppose to bind off and start a new panel or continue the new panel without binding off. thanks Maizee123@yahoo,.com
