My first (completely) FO
I made this hat for my sister for her birthday. It's a bit tight on me, since my head is way bigger than hers, but you get the idea. I guess it came out alright, except for that small part of the band that sticks up where my stitching was less than even. Figures I'd capture that part with the camera (D'oh!)

Is the top of the hat supposed to have that sort of "peak" to it?

I think it will do that, simply because the stiches are gatherd up, but I'm not sure ^_^;;

That's really pretty, I'm sure your sister will love it!

First project? I'm impressed! Love the cable work. You have a very lucky sister. (And I think the peaks are just from the decrease method.) Very nice!!!!

Well, first knitted object isn't totally honest or accurate. It's the first object that I've actually COMPLETED. I've done plenty of stuff that I've either torn apart or threw out, etc for practice.

Thanks for the comments! Does anyone know of a decrease method that doesn't make that funky bump up top?
