Hi! I've been a bit of a lurker for quite a while, but I've finally got something finished that I want to share. I've been knitting on and off for a couple years, but I've been more committed these past few months. I tried to make most of my friends' Christmas presents. Needless to say, many of them are on an IOU list, but hey, I guess I won't be bored for a while. I finished a few of them, but they were finished in such a rush that I didn't get to take pictures. Maybe I can track them down and post 'em soon.

Anyway, this one was for my big sis. She wanted a slouchy hat, so I used the Gemma Beret pattern from Rowan.
I cast on in the round w/ dpns (the pattern is written to be knit up flat), and I heard that the hat as written came out super large, so I reduced the number of stitches and basically had to edit the pattern a whole lot as I went. Since this is my second hat and first major pattern manipulation, you can see just why I'm so proud of it!

Oooh, I LOVE that hat. Are those cables, or just a stitch pattern?

it's a stitch pattern that makes a zig-zag kind of thing it alternates every odd row with p1, k2tog, yrn, p1 and p1, yfwd, s1, k1, psso, p1 with just p1, k2, p1 on the evens
