Sunday Hats - Heads-Up

It's Sunday so you know we're talking hats and the pattern for the day is Heads-Up from the Spring, 2005 issue of Interweave Knits.

knitted hat pattern from Interweave Knits, found on Ravelry, slip stitch pattern
Heads-Up, Interweave Knits, Spring 2005
It's a simple slip stitch design and would be a fantastic way to use up those little scraps of yarn left over from other knitting projects.  Of course, knitting this hat would also be a terrific excuse to go yarn shopping.  The pattern calls for cotton DK yarn but I don't see why you couldn't use wool instead.  And, if you have a calculator and paid any attention in school, it should be fairly easy to modify the pattern in order to use differently weighted yarn.  If your knitting pattern collection doesn't contain the Spring 2005, Interweave Knits magazine, the pattern is available for sale on Ravelry. 

As for my own hat knitting...

Wiinter hat for teens or preteens, hand dyed purple and pink wool, slightly slouchy
Pink & Hand-dyed Purple Hat
The junior sized pink and purple hat is complete.  It's definitely pink.  But I think there's probably a teen or pre-teen young lady out there somewhere with a passion for pink that will love wearing this hat.  If you have such a girl in your midst, the hat should be listed for sale in my Etsy shop by tomorrow afternoon.

Meanwhile, I think I'll go search the stash pile and start myself a slipped stitch Heads-Up hat.
