Another Funny Hat

Sometimes when I'm in the middle of a bigger project, I need a smaller project to take on the road, and hats fit the bill. Hence this

(That little bump on the right is matched on the left. The matching bump is just hidden behind the edge.) The bumps aren't really bobbles. They're sort of cheater bobbles. You knit into the front, then the back, then the front, then the back, then the front of one stitch. After the last "in the front" you finally drop the stitch off the left needle. There are now 5 kind of clustered sts on the right needle. You take the tip of the left needle and lift the first 4 over the one closest to the needle tip and off the needle. (Like a psso, only there are 4 sts being passed over).

I haven't tried the hat on yet, but it looks about the right size. I don't really need another hat, though, so I'll probably give it away.
