Daughter #2 picked out this Plymouth Encore Colorspun Bulky the other day at a LYS. The pattern is called Meathead from Stitchmarker. The flower is from Nicky Epstein's Knitted Embellishments and I found the pattern here. I used #15 straights, some vintage Susan Bates that might very well be one of my first sets ever purchased way back in junior high. This hat took about 45 minutes to make. My only changes on the next one would be to cast on using the long tail method instead of cable cast on (too loose) and to cast on with #13s and save the #15s for the stockinette part. I think 'll make another for the donation at FIT. We're all converging there tomorrow to listen to YarnHarlot. Can't wait!
