I whipped up this beanie on the fly just trying out some stitch patterns to create the effect I wanted to make my mother a hat for Christmas. After some trial and error I finally got what I was looking for.

Great hat. I always admire you guys who say things like "I whipped this up on the fly" or "trying out stitch patterns, I came up with this" and such like things. I can knit with a pattern decently enough but I lack the confidence to do anything on the fly. I just know I will end up with a misshappen wash cloth.
