Even though I knit the crown twice, photographing this hat was a lot more difficult than knitting it. I managed to break the filter on my lens and kill the battery in my remote.
The hat was an easy knit. I worked the crown twice because I decided that the swirly single decreases I did the first time didn’t match the band. It’s just a basic beanie with a cabled band so it went really quick.
Kevin seems to like it and insists that he will actually wear it. I don’t entirely believe him, but I enjoyed knitting the hat and he’s pleased with it and that’s what counts.
