Olympic Hat

Watching the Winter Olympics on the television, I have been wowed by many of the hats worn by the spectators, especially at the Alpine events. With snow forecast again this week (actually, it's started snowing as I'm typing this!) and no sign of the weather warming up I decided to use my last drop of Marble chunky yarn to make a hat. I have already made Paisley and Haven with this yarn - I only bought 4 x 200g balls and I still had about 100m left (wonderful value for money). So this is the hat I have made.

I trawled through the thousands of hat patterns on Ravelry and this is the one that really caught my eye.
The pattern is Bucket and Brims hat by Kimberly Kwon. A mix of stocking stitch and reverse stocking stitch, it is very easy and took about 2 hours to make.

I'm not usually a hat fan but I do love this one. It's very easy to wear and I like the way it looks on me.

It is supposed to be knitted in the round but I used straight needles and adapted the pattern.
