MAL Quicky: Hurricane Hat + challenge prize!

Alright, by a 4-1 vote the Hurricane Hat has it! I’ve snapped up a skein of yarn, wound it, and have even dropped the details into my Ravelry Notebook. The official CastOn has begun. Ready. Set. Knit!

Now to spice thing up, if you finish your hat by Friday night AND post a picture of it to the MAL Quicky Flickr Group, you’ll be entered to win a digital edition copy of Craft Leftovers Monthly!

Become a member of the Flickr Group here. You can post up to three pictures per a month – your yarn, a wip photo, and the finished hat.

Clearly I was inspired by the blue hat pictured above. I’m using a self dyed worsted weight merino. I’m concerned it’s a little too thin for the pattern gauge so I’m have a back up lace weight yarn I may wind into it. Since I want the hat to be warm (and I want to use up stash), I’d rather add in more yarn thickness than work with a larger needle size.

On to an evening of crafting!

Happy Knitting and thanks for joining me on this Make-A-Long adventure!

  1. Berroco Ultra Alpaca in a lovely brown shade from my stash is all balled up and ready to go! Just got home from my work Christmas party, so it may be too late to cast on tonight, but I’m on it tomorrow after work.
