Every time I see one of Albert's great hat posts I think I really need to make a post of the hats I've made recently. So here goes...
(Lots of pictures under the cut)
I wasn't in love with the Team USA Winter Olympic Hat that the athletes were wearing during the Opening Ceremonies. Until I saw the pattern on Ravelry and saw others had made it. Plus I knew it would really impress my non-knitter friends.
It is really one big hat! The fact that I tend to knit really loose when doing stranded color-work added to the size of it. But it is big, warm and cozy and I really like it. I tried washing it in warm water and sloshing it around to shrink it down a bit. I may have to have another go at that.
