Just a simple watch cap made with camouflage yarn for a little different look. Nothing fancy.
I like it, your hats are always wonderful Mason.

Very nice, I love the way variegated yarns create a pattern.
Thanks, I wanted something just a tad different than a plain camo cap.
Aother nice great item, Mason
Great having your stuff posted to inspire others.
MMario - ambiguity is cultivated, it doesn't happen in a vacuum!
Thanks. Last night I received another request to make a hat for someone. I've already started one for her in her favorite colors.
Keep this up Mason and you'll have to give up the day job.
I agree with Tallguy. Let the yarn do all the work. It came out great.
Visit Crafty Andy's Blog looks good, how do you cast on? Do you do a Long Tail Cast On or cable cast on for your hats?
Thanks, I usually do a long tail cast on.
Simple is always good, especially when you already have pattern in your yarn. If you had a solid colour yarn, then you could use pattern in your stitches. It's usually not a good idea to mix the two -- as seen in your ribbing -- the pattern doesn't show itself as well.
I agree and normally I wouldn't have ribbed a variegated yarn, but I actually wanted it to look that way so the folded up bit would look different from the body of the hat. Kind of a contrasting section without changing yarn.
Beautiful and smoothly knit. The varigated yarn worked out really nicely in this hat.
It may be "nothing fancy," but I still think it turned out fantastic!
I love how that bold dark brown stripe stands out among all the more varied sections.
Thanks. I thought it looked pretty cool and got a couple of comments on it tonight while wearing it. I guess sometimes simple is good. :D
