quick hat

After knitting 5 hats for 5 different people I realized my head got cold too, so I knit myself a quick one-day hat.

I didn’t use a pattern, but I worked the ribbing and the decreases on the top like the Wurm pattern. I had knit the wurm for my mother this summer and I liked the ribbing bit a lot. Such a clever idea.

The hat part itself is pretty straightforward: 108 Stitches on 4mm needles, plain stockinette with single purls for dots. And, of course, a huge pompom.

Yarn used: 100% Merino
2 balls Lana Grossa COOL WOOL Big Melange, color 340 (dark olive/olive yellow mottled)

The only thing that annoys me is that I managed to end up with a ball that had a knot in the middle and, consequently, was from two different dye lots at once. I’m slightly annoyed about the yellow strip that runs across the hat now, but I also didn’t care enough to do anything about it when I got to the knot. Oh well …
