i started this hat for glen last year. it was supposed to be tucked into his stocking at christmas time, but it didn't quite make it. i had completely forgotten about it (or just lost interest in it, maybe). i am a very bad knitter like that. but i found it this weekend and finished it up lickety split, barbara trick!
it was a really fun project, too. i was completely inspired to make it by melana, who is my knitting hero. just look at her version! i was hoping for a little more of a neutral stripe in mine, but c'est la vie. i do have enough to knit another one, but with my knitter's add, it is not likely to happen this year.
the pattern is jared flood's turn a square. the pattern is available for free here. and his completely awesome blog is here.
camden was my model....
my only disappointment with this knit was that my attempt at a jogless stripe failed. if there is not a youtube video showing me how to execute these kinds of things, i am in trouble.
i am so happy that fall is here. and i can't wait to cast on for the next project!
