Because I’ve been eyeing the pattern forever, I finally made this uber cute hat!
Pattern: Turn A Square
Yarn: Caron Vickie Howell Sheep(ish)
Colorway: Plum(ish) and Coral(ish)
Needles: US 5 (circulars) and US 7 (circulars and dpns)
Size: Average Noggin’ Size
Notes: The instructions regarding making the jogless stripe color changes were not a clear as they could be. I knit 50% of this hat before I finaaaaaally got what they meant (totally on accident). I then had to frog all the way down to the ribbing and redo it. I hate frogging but it looked janky as hell. I have to admit though, it’s a cool technique and it does make the color change less obvious in the end.
Also, is it me or is this hat a little on the bright(ish) side? When I was all finished with this little number, I looked at it and thought “Well helllllo there bright little striped hat!” Then I realized that I have a hoodie in the exact same colors. What does that say about me? Should I be concerned? I also feel like these colors belong to some college or pro football team. You have to admit, it does have a go-sit-in-the-stands-and-cheer-on-your-team feel to it.
