My friend Steve is about to go on a co-op job to Alaska for six months (over winter!) and I told him I would knit him a bright orange hat (my roommate is going to knit him some matching mittens), but I have yet to find a pattern that doesn't look "girly." I'm not a very good knitter yet - I started about ten months ago. I've made a few hats (just finished a cute cabled one for myself!) and I can do things like cables, and my roommate can explain just about anything else to me...So my only issue right now is FINDING a pattern.
Any ideas? If worse comes to worse, I'll just make something up...it's gotta be done in two weeks!
Thanks. By the way, this is my first post here, but I've been lurking for a week or so. :o
