Today is thing Two's BFF's birthday, so T2 requested I make either some legwarmers or a slouchy beanie for her. Slouchy beanie it was! I finished it with a few hours to spare - whew! Kiana seemed to like it; she was wearing it when she and her mom brought T2 back from dinner (Korean food!) tonight.
Thing Two graciously agreed to model it for me.
I did the garter band a la Ripley, then joined, picked up stitches, [kfb, kfbf] around, then threw in a dropped stitch pattern. Because it was knit so loosely, the dropped stitches just created a little texture. I knit for...a while...then decreased sharply. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. Whatchathink?
