Ski Hat

A friend of mine, who was intriqued by my speed crochet on the car journey, asked me if i could make him a hat to match his ski boots.

I made this.

I knitted this one top down. Which was ok, but hard work to do on the DPNs. The reason i wanted to do this one top down was so that i could work out the size better on the fly, rather than having to cast on the right amount of stitches. This would have been ok, except as the hat grew, I still wasnt able to try the hat on as the circular needles were too small to fit it on my head. I should have really changed over to the DPNs again to do this.

Thist wasnt my best effort at a hat, and might make it again later to do a better job of it.
