The yarn is Cascade 220 Heathers in color #7273 and Noro Kureyon in color #149. This hat took five days from start to finish of on-again, off-again knitting. I had just knit an entire sweater in less than a week, and needed something instant-gratification to reward myself.
I kind of legitimized knitting something that wasn’t on my to-do list because I learned a new technique – the jogless join! In the pattern, Jared points us to this tutorial; I’m really pleased with how it looks. It’s almost invisible!
(By the way, you still have one week to sign up for the cables class at the Knit Nook. Be an enabler; I’m dying to cast on for the Irish Hiking Scarf.)
