I decided recently that I needed a project that was small enough that it could fit in my purse so I could take knitting to work without dragging my big project bags around. I don’t knit at lunch everyday so it seemed silly to haul something so large back and forth on the off chance that I might want it. Starting a new small project seemed like a much better plan. I decided on making a hat out of Cascade 220. I cast on some stitches and started a few rows of 2×2 rib, but I need to figure out what I want to do for the body of the hat soon, and I’m having trouble deciding. I’m debating between a broken rib pattern and a simple eyelet pattern, but I haven’t decided. The more I think about it, the more ideas I come up with. My only restriction is the amount of yarn I have. I have enough for beanie but cables probably aren’t an option. What do you think I should do? Broken rib? Lace? Some other sort of texture?
