Cornbread is square, but pi is round.

I have long hair.  I wear it in ponytails most of the time.  I like beanies.  See where this is going?  I HATE wearing beanies when I have a ponytail in, so I was thinking about making a beanie with a ponytail hole.  I don't want a calorimetry, they fall off my head sporadically.  So what I was thinking about doing was working in the round until the point where I wanted to start making the hole, then going back and forth around the beanie until it's as long as I want it, then going back to working in the round.  Maybe changing colors for the section where I'm working back and forth... dunno.

Questions:

Is this a good idea?
Has someone else achieved this previously here?
Will it look funky if I change from in the round to back-n-forth?
How big should I make the beanie hole to accommodate different ponytail heights but keep my head warm?
Suggestions/Warnings?

How about making a pretty big hole, long but narrow, and put in several buttons so that you could close it up except for where you want the ponytail?

I think you're on the right track...it would be like making a vertical button hole big enough for your ponytail.

That sounds like it would totally work - so will it look stupid if I do it in the round for a while, then switch to back'n'forth for a while, then back to in the round?  Can you tell I'm afraid to try new things?

Aw heck, I'll give it a shot and see how it turns out.

Once I'm done with the latest project.  I need multiples of each hook size now...

Come to think of it, I have a new question:

How in the HECK do you guys keep your work from coming off the hook when you have to set it down for a while?  And what do you do if you need the hook you're working with on a different project that you absolutely HAVE to start?
