I knit my first hat a couple of weeks ago. It's 2nd Time 75% recycled Cotton. So far I've also made a scarf and two dish towels. :)
Jill just made an interesting diagonal striped hat. She cast on 80 stitches and made the brim normally. Once that was done she kint 9 stitches from 9 balls of yarn making a total of 81 so that each row rotates by 1 stitch.
