Three hats I've been working on for Christmas presents.

Raindrop Hat




Northern Lights Hat




Tidal Wave Hat




All three:






I based the structure of the hats loosely on the Winter Sunrise Hat by Elinor Brown, but used a variety of stitch patterns, some that I found online, some that I made up on my own.  I have to say, these hats are quite addictive.  I can't want to start another!

OMG. Your hats are great.  You should be really proudl. I want to do some stranded knitting someday but it looks so difficult.

it's really pretty easy - the biggest thing to remember is to keep the float loose - the float is that strand of yarn that you carry across the back until the next place you need to use that color - generally, if you twist the 2 strands every 4 or 5 stitches on the longer areas, that'll keep it from getting too loopy

It's really not that bad...it just takes a little patience!  For me, the hardest part is keeping everything coordinated.  Juggling five dpns and two balls of yarn takes a little coordination, (I tend to drop a ball of yarn on the floor pretty frequently, which results in me looking silly as I try to chase after it without dropping any stitches!), but as for the knitting itself, it's not nearly as hard as I thought it would be.
