Vine Hat

So I made this yesterday after finishing the second sleeve for my sweater. I needed something to do as I walk around campus, and I love my circulars for this hat.
It is a very easy pattern:
CO 100
K1,P1 rib for 1 inch
Knit all remaining rounds to 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 inches
decrease by K2tog, K8 first round; K2tog, K7 second round....

It makes a very cool 10 point spiral decrease. This hat is for a buddy of mine, made to cover his ears, and I am making another one for another friend right now. I have decided that everyone I know that would wear one, is getting a hat for hands may never forgive me.

The darkest blue is all

The darkest blue is all wool, the lighter blue is Lion Brand Wooleze (80% wool?) and the lightest blue is this 100% acrylic that I HATE, but that the guy I made this for wanted me to use. I found the vine pattern online somewhere and just decided to have fun with it. I have so much of the acyrlic left....I think I am going to make him a sweater out of it and hope it shrinks and strangles him with its crappyness.
