Look what I finished over Thanksgiving weekend:

Pattern: Gnomey Hat by Hello Yarn
Yarn: Deborah Norville’s (I know…right?) Serenity Chunky
Needles: Size 10 DPNs
Accidental modifications: not knowing the difference between garter stitch and reverse stockinette (I know…right?), the section that is supposed to be garter curls pretty severely. Having already pulled the whole thing out a couple of times by the time it was pointed out to me by a more experienced knitter, I opted to just let it go. Deep breaths. Luckily Clementine hasn’t complained (noticed?) yet.

Here it is, prior to end-weaving, on its (I think obviously pleased) recipient. Pretty happy grandpa too, eh?

    Looks good! You could always sew some cotton flannel or polar fleece on the earflap part to keep it from rolling.
