Falling Leaves Hat
Made out of Paton's Kroy sock yarn, this hat is on display at the Beehive in Spencer, Iowa. The pattern for it is found in Creative Knitting Magazine, September 2012. The gauge is given only for ribbing, making it difficult to calculate, and I had to knit the hat twice. I didn't realize how large the first one was until I tried it on. The second time around I got cocky about the pattern and made lots of mistakes ~ but they were easy to hide in the pattern. Most of them are missed increases that I made up in later rows. If you make the pattern, note that in one place a decrease normally labeled at CDD (center double decrease) is in one place abbreviated: s2kp (slip 2, knit 1, pass slipped stitches over).
