Week 2 – Accessory

Year: Recent

Wear again? Gosh, I hope so.

Total Cost: about $5 for one skein of yarn, plenty left over for use in another project

I made this for Mr. Uncommon Geek so I could try out the Jayne hat pattern. I think he has worn this hat once outside of our apartment. This is certainly the winter for extra layers so I hope he will be able to get a lot of use out of this hat.

There isn’t really much else to say about this hat. It is a pretty basic pattern. The hardest part was trying to figure out how to change the pattern while using straight needles and not circular needles. There really doesn’t seem to be many options for hat patterns out there that don’t involve either double pointed needles or circular needles.  I got a pair of circular needles for Christmas so I can try them out when I do finally get around to making the cunning Jayne hat in the yellow, orange and red colors.

Happy knitting!
