Getting Goofy

I was at loose ends for a fairly simple project to work on. And I was feeling experimental. And I had some loose ends of worsted weight yarn, bits and pieces that didn't add up to enough to make anything large.

The situation obviously called for a "start at the top and make it up as you go along" hat.



This is the result of my playtime with color and texture. (As always, you can click on the picture to make it bigger). There are actually two different oranges and two different browns involved. There are some slipped stitches that have been crossed right and left. There is some purling. Kept my mind occupied without having to think more than a round or two ahead.

That is a GREAT hat! Will you write up the pattern and post it on Ravelry? I bet some others will want to try it.

Oh boy, I would have to reverse engineer it....

Maybe I should try to do it as a series of blog posts.

Very fun hat!! Also, love the top down approach!! (Sort of equivalent to a "toe-up" sock, yes? :-)
