Knitangle: Tassled Hat

My sister coined the word knitangle to describe all those wonky rectangles we beginners knit and crochet. I have a stock of them and until I learn to increase and decrease, I’m going to make quite a few more. But I hate the thought of all that knitting going to waste or being unravelled. Enter Knitangle - ideas for reclaiming knitted rectangles - with tutorials for making projects from simple rectangles. I suppose you could even knit a rectangle on purpose to try the project.

The Knitangle project sheets include a photo of a finished item, a materials list and illustrated instructions. Expect them as an irregular mediatinker feature until I am done with my stash or take the time to learn some new knitting tricks.

Ok, so how many people pulled on your earknobs? That hat cries out “tweak me!” I love it. Your knitangles are so stylish. I used one of mine as a tree skirt this year for Christmas.
