Sometimes I just want a mindless knit - and this hat managed to be that, with some little twists to keep it from being totally boring. First, there is a round of eyelets introduced into the ribbing section - you could thread a ribbon through these for extra oomph - and second, the decreases are done more gradually than usual in the hopes of creating a “conehead” effect. Otherwise, it’s just knit knit knit all evening long!
