|Turn a Square 1: This went to Matt|
I made this using Cascade 220 in Jet (Jet!) and Noro Silk Garden in Band on the Run (kidding). I liked that it was more of a charcoal gray for the Cascade, and I looooooved the Noro per usual. The pattern is insanely easy, and a good first project for colorwork, since it's a good way to get a knitter started on changing colors with stripes. I also loved the crown shaping, and will probably borrow it for other projects, since I liked how it sat on my head better.
What's also great is that I could make two hats out of these two skeins. I presented both to Matt -- one was blue and green, and one was a lot more subtle with blue and a lot of blacks and grays -- and he went with the blue and green one. I decided to keep the blue and gray one for myself. I'm thinking of making these hats for my brothers or even my brother and his girlfriend for Christmas.
