I’ve been trying to use up my yarn lately, and doing a pretty decent job of it. This is just the latest in the stashbusting category.
After knitting Elleby, I decided that I liked the look of 2×2 ribbing the best, and two inches worth of it. So that’s why I chose not to knit the brim as written (picot). The hat is huge, and I wish I knit the body with a smaller needle, but it’s still a really fun (and warm!) hat.
If I were to knit it again, I would use a smaller needle for the body, and possibly cut out a repeat. I haven’t blocked this one either. Eh. I like the texture as is.
Pattern: Aira (Rav link)
