Mitered hat in progress
I cast on another mitered hat in the same wool as I had made my first; handspun that was a gift from a friend. Nubbly and slubbed yarns are shown to their best advantage in reverse stockinette stitch, so this is a great pattern for the yarn.
Here's the hat in progress with one and one half sections knit. That was accomplished during a phone call and on the walk home. It is a very fast knit and frugal with yarn (both ribbed hats and garter stitch hats use more yarn, but they are also more elastic for the same reason).
Here's a closer look at the short-rowing that creates the crown in a series of wedges. If you're scared of socks, try this hat first.
And as weird and as stubby as my fingers look here, I swear I have not had a traumatic amputation. They're just curled under holding the hat.
