|My face isn't necessary, lol.|
The hat itself is just a basic 2x2 rib, 60 sts around, knit on circulars. I forget what size of circular, but my biggest needles with the smallest connection basically. Lol. I am a bad knitter, I don't gauge on these things. I am more the type to frog something and try a different pattern or make one up as I go if somehting isn't working out how the pattern says it should. I chose just simple rib because of the self striping effect of the yarn, I didn't want anything too complicated to look weird with the stripes.
I wanna make a baby-sized hat out of this yarn because I know a lot of people having kids and I like non-baby coloured items more than giving them something pale blue or pale green or pale pink. I still have one ball left of this colourway so a baby hat with some curly-q's as a pom pom and maybe some booties if I can figure out how to make them. I have some issues with some things because of the aforementioned lack of doing a proper gauge swatch and checking that. Bad Knitter!
