I actually made something for ME?
I have never in 20 plus years made something for myself.
Then I fell in love with this yarn made by ...Red Heart.
It's called "Rag Doll". Described by them as roving wrapped in a fringed thread.
It is beautiful yarn but was oily and I had to wash it before I knit it so I didn't get hives.
After all that handling, I had to make something for myself. I caved over pretty colors.
Why is it a ponytail hat?
Because I made a hole in the back for my ponytail.
I was extremely pleased by that.

Other details...hmmm

my own pattern, colorway is "Wow", and I used 10 1/2 circular and DPN's.
Thanks for looking and any comments!

A ponytail hat? That's a good, practical idea.

You should make things for yourself more often! It's great to wear something you made yourself.

I have some of that exact yarn!  it looks much better as a hat than what I was originally using it for (drop-stitch scarf)... I might have to do that instead!

I was going to make a scarf for my sis from this...and it was going to be a drop stitch one. I will be going and getting more for my sister.
If you do make a hat radiochu, be advised that it is extremely dense knit up on 10 1/2 needles....but extremely warm too. I even wore it in pouring rain and stayed dry.

I've seen these in magazines where the back buttons up. Yours is much cuter. Smiley

absolutely brilliant.  lovely colors, and i have to say, i get really unhappy when i have to wear a winter hat with my ponytails (they get all static).

Nice work!
