I wanted to make a hat as a birthday gift and needed a manly color in bulky yarn. I don’t have a lot of bulky in the stash so decided to steal the yarn from my Shoji cowl I was knitting. I had started the cowl on larger needles than called for by mistake and it was going to be a bit too wide anyway.
So – commandeered the yarn yesterday afternoon and last night finished this hat (many people probably used that extra hour due to Daylight Saving Time ending to sleep – I used it to knit). 🙂 I changed the pattern a bit since the twisted stitch was only supposed to be on the front half and the back half in stockinette. It’s knit in Miss Babs K2 – a bulky yarn and should be nice an warm when “snowblower” season arrives.
Since the first hat went to quickly, I want to make another one – having a choice of hats is always good – so need to dig out some worsted for the second one which is called the “Bus Hat.” Both these hats are freebie patterns on Ravelry.
