I got a lot of knitting done during jury duty this week. (No, I wasn’t on a trial, just sitting in an air conditioned waiting room for a while and then the last juror in the selection room for a longer while so it was obvious I wasn’t ever going to get questioned.)
I finished up this beanie for my cousin for Christmas. I’m happy to report that I’ve already finished four winter holiday gifts as part of my Holiday Stashdown Challenge. Yay!
This was a quick knit on size 15 needles.
I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick for the cuff…
… and two strands of Moda Dea Tweedle Dee for the rest of the hat. This is a great stash buster. I used a simple 3 by 3 ribbing throughout. I plan to make something similar for my other cousin (his brother) in a different colorway. You can see my Ravelry project page here. I tried it on MC to verify that it would fit a grown man, but I wasn’t able to lure him out into the blazing sun to model for a finished picture.
