Knitted up this hat this morning and afternoon for Maker Monday!
I originally started it with the intention of sending it to one of my best friends who is currently in veterinary school. But after getting about sixteen rows up, I realized that I had absentmindedly been knitting my color changes way too tightly, and there was a visible diagonal line across the back. Maybe it wouldn't be as obvious to someone not looking directly at it, but it was driving me crazy. Instead of frogging it, I started doing it more loosely and decided to keep the hat for myself and start another one for her. You can see in the second photo where I realized my mistake. Whoops!
Still generally happy with the hat. I'm wearing it right now and it's really cozy!
I've written up a pattern. You can find it on my blog here.
