Another hat complete! Ah, the Hurricane Hat. This one only took a day-and-a-half to knit, and what a fun pattern. As the rows piled on, I felt transfixed by the spiral as it inched upward. A really fun, relatively easy hat to knit.
I wasn’t too sure about the color going in. The yarn is taupe mixed with white, and I was afraid it would be too dark. My first instinct was to find some yarn with pink, brown, and white mixed, to match my mother-in-law’s winter coat. In digging through my yarn stash, I came upon the taupe-and-white yarn, and 2/3 is not a bad ratio, so I ran with it. The end result is not as dark as I feared it might be, and I think she’ll like it.
Methinks I’ll have to knit one up for myself. After I finish the hat I started for my other sister-in-law. More details to come on that soon!
