Through a cold & lots of sneezing, the winter olympics (did you see the ski-cross?!) and ending to Arnie in Predator, I made this double-rib knitted hat yesterday. I wanted to make one for my ski trip next week and wondered how long it would take. A few hours on a Sunday it seems. It was meant to be all double-rib (with some other stitching at the top), but I added an initial inch in single-rib for a nice edge. I am mighty pleased.
Maybe a teeny tiny bit too long as a beanie, but good to keep warm. I can always turn up the edge, thus!
Pattern was from here, if you wanted to try it too.
