It's Friday afternoon and your cardigan is slowly progressing. You want to do something fun at the bottom in lieu of the 2x2 rib the pattern calls for. Some pattern perusing online. Back-issues of Vogue and Interweave Knitting magazines are brought out. Nothing inspires. The weekend is coming and all the while you just want to finish something. Cast on for a project, watch your fingers quickly turn string into garments, and cast off again. A look through the stash and 2 small skeins of yarn are found. Ravelry, a seriously invaluable resource, is logged into and the advanced search is activated. Here is my yarn and since I only have 110 yards I need a small project so how about looking up a hat. Oh and I don't want to have to buy anything either because this is after all just a quick hit of knitting no need to fire up paypal or anything :)
Enter this hat.
A very easy knit. The pattern can be found here. I used Rowan Cashsoft Chunky yarn, just under 2 skeins.
