Citadel hat: halfway done!

I’ve been working on a knitting project called the Citadel hat (free pattern), and I’m already halfway through!

Citadel hat halfway through
“But that looks almost complete,” you might be thinking, but the Citadel hat is lined! The provisional cast-on will soon be connected to either a light silver or a coral colored yarn (not sure which yet), which will be worked in stockinette for the entire second layer. ย The yarn I used (click here for more info) might not have been the best idea, even though it’s gorgeous and works up so nicely, because the slight variations in color make the stitch pattern a bit difficult to see, but I love it anyway.

Upon trying it on, it’s a tad big for my smallish head, but with the lining I bet some of that space will be filled up (and I like roomy hats that will cover my ears, anyway, so it’s perfect).

Well, that’s all for now! ย Thanks for stopping by!


  1. stunning hat, but I’m too slow a knitter to try it ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Thanks! Knitting does take a long time (especially compared to crochet) but using thicker yarn does speed up the process. Making hats with sock weight yarn takes eons! ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. I want to see it done. Will it be reversible?


  3. You could stuff a spare pair of socks up there for bulking out the head, plus if you get cold toots you can pop them on? ๐Ÿ˜œ


    • Hahaha that would be hilarious! Really though, putting small pockets in things could be a good idea… Like on mittens/gloves, having a pocket for those little handwarmer packets could be really awesome! ๐Ÿ˜€
