Beehive or Bouncy Hat?
This is the first in a series of new hats that we are knitting up and displaying in the shop this month. I made this "Noro Hat" from a free pattern on Ravelry, in one weekend (two 2 hour flights plus another 2 hour session). Looks a bit like a beehive and is VERY comfortable, I don't like my hats too snug. It is a simple pattern to work, switching from stockinette to reverse stockinette every four rows. You will need 2 skeins of Noro Kureyon (about 200 meters) or any other similar yarn and you don't even have to have two of the same color! This hat could also be very cute in school colors, alternating colors as you move up the hat. You will need US#7 circs, 16" and a set of double points and one stitch marker. A whimsical, quick knit for those who don't want to take life too seriously!
Stay tuned for the next hat I'm casting on today, I promise it will be quite different from it's friend the beehive!
