Hey everyone! I finished this hat as a Christmas present for my little brother - it's a stranded hat in his school colors (he just entered middle school, so that's kind of what he likes). I actually left The Knitting Workshop at college when I came home, so I kind of improvised this hat. But that's what Elizabeth Zimmermann would have wanted anyway, right? ;)
Let me know what you think!

Ooooooooh! That is soooo nice little redhead! Way to go! I just love colorwork! I don't love knitting it...bugt, I love looking at it, and wearing it! Me and colorwork (stranded knitting) don't get along so well! :eyes: I have the darndest time with the tension. Sigh.

Me too! I love knitting cables, but I have a hard time with stranded. That's why I think it's good for me to practice on small projects like this :happydance:
