FO: Black Watch Cap
A pretty simple watch cap, no pattern. I tried something a little different with the decreases, basically doing 5 decreases on each round so that I wound up with a 1x1 ribbing at the top. I'm not too happy with that and will probably do a more standard decrease pattern on future caps.

Very nice! I love a black watch cap -- it's so masculine! It will go well with your black palindrome scarf.

Mason,
I like the hat. You are really starting to turn out FO's. You must knit pretty quickly.

Yeah, I learned that there's a reason decreases are gone about a certain way

Thanks everyone.

What don't you like about the way you decreased? The picture looks good, both the ribbing and the shape.
