WIP: Le Hatte

Dear readers, never before has a work in progress been such exactly that. Find others here!

I wanted to make a hat for my Canadian friend out of sock weight yarn. So I decided to hold three strands together to make it go faster since he was soon coming(and because when I was making my second ball it literally flew off the winder!). Then I had to hodge-podge some patterns together. I am currently starting the decrease rounds and hoping that it will fit a someone!

I mixed Horizontal Ribbed Hat by Marci Blank from my Sock Yarn, One Skein Wonders Book with a bluky weight pattern: - Man Hat. Honestly it doesn't look like either one!

The yarn is from Aloha Blue, a very talented Fiber Magician on Etsy. I am never disappointed.
