VERY cool. I really like those swirls.
Not sure I understand how you say to do it though. I'll have to re-read what you did a couple times (takes me a while to 'get it'!).
GREAT WORK!

The swirl is actually easy to do (once I figured it out )

Just do the decreases using a SSK decrease and it will create that shift to the left that causes the swirl. What I did for the flattened swirl top was to do a SSK decrease in eighths around (divide the total number of stitches by 8) alternated by a straight knit round, all the way down to a final 8 stitches which I threaded and pulled.

So for the initial 88 stitches I would do a SSK, and K9 then SSK K9, around (88 divided by 8 = 11). Next decrease round would be 80 divided by 8 =10 so SSK, K8, etc.

Hope that makes sense.

Very nice! You'll have to publish your pattern!

I must say that I am so impressed with your progress. What a joy to watch a new knitter accomplish new skills and grow in confidence. I well-remember your angst over that first scarf.

Nicely done!

Ok, I wrote the pattern (as well as I could) and published it on Ravelry. It's called "Skullcap Beanie". Let me know if I need to re-write any of it. It's my first pattern and may not be written clearly enough.

I like your cap Mason. I got your pattern off of your bolg. I'm making one for myself. It'll look good with the locks that I'm growing.

Really nice work, as usual, Mason.

Are you at home, or driving in the ice storms? Stay safe!
