This is my last hat and I need to get back to Christmas gifts!!! This hat was basically the same as the grey one - CO 88 of a sport weight yarn. Use a size 3 needle. Rib (either 1X1 or 2X2 for an inch), plain knit for 4 inches, then decrease for the top. This is also my Shrek hat because I made most of him while watchine Shrek 3 with the kids. I used Nature Spun Sport in Blue Bell for the hat. It was a bit crunchy at first, I think the yarn has sat in a warehouse for a looooong time. But it soften up the once I got past the first layer on the cone. I think I will have to go ahead and make the sweater for my son I was planning with the rest :)
Have a great weekend everyone!!
