Talk about instant gratification. I finished my hat last night. I really enjoyed the pattern. It's a four row repeat, and it's fairly intuitive. Once I finished one round, I didn't need to refer back to the pattern to see where I was.
Beaufort Hat, by Angela Hahn
Yarn: Knitpicks Wool of the Andes, Daffodil, approximately 85 yards (I'm really not sure how much I used. I finished off the skein from my Something Red (and Yellow) and then used some of a second skein.)
Needle: Knitpicks, Size 7 circular
Time: 4 days
I will probably make a few of these for Christmas presents. The pattern is enjoyable, and I think the hat is impressive.
Yep, I like it. It gave me the sunshine I needed. Houston's forecast for the next seven days is rain, by the way.
