Truly. I have to say, when I knit this pattern again I will never use variegated yarn again. There’s a shorter (someone who gave up on this workout-of-a-knitted-hat-pattern on ravelry called Jesse’s Christmas Hat )version that is really quite cute and I’ve just begun making one into a baby hat for my sweet Sammy.
This hat is so lovingly made and it was such a struggle at times, but so rewarding, and so relaxing in my currently stressful & chaotic work environment. What on earth would we all do without knitting?
