Still Rollin'

Finished another beanie last night. It was made from the yarn remains of the earflap beanie. Even though I don't do browns much, these colors really strike me. The Pattern came from a search on Ravelry. It's the Solstice Hat, with a few alterations - changing it from a child's had done in a bulky yarn to an adult hat done in worsted.

Here are the changes, in case you are interested:

. Needle sizes 6 and 7
. Worsted weight yarn (I used Cascade 220 Superwash)
. Cast on 108 stitches
. Six rows of ribbing instead of 3
. Three rounds of plain knit before starting the fair isle pattern (three rounds
after, too.)
. Two additional rounds before starting the crown decreases.
. Start the decreases with K 16, K2tog - and work down to six, as the directions
indicate from there.

And here is the finished product:

And now on to a beanie for hubby! He feels so abused, not having a wife-made beanie. He will be better once I get a warm little cap on his head.
