Striped Wooly

Quick and easy to knit up in seedstitch. My first pom pom is on it (a little wonky, but good enough to hide the hole at the top...) I came up with the pattern as I went along. You can just make out the slightly rolled rim. It took a couple of tries before I found the stitch pattern that I wanted - something stretchy, that would show up with a subtle textural pattern, and NO GAPS. What's the point of a hole-filled winter hat, after all?? What's really special about this hat is the lovely, chemical-free and environmentally-friendly Green Mountain Spinnery yarn that was used. Their Green Mountain Green is 40% kid mohair, and 60% fine wool, which makes a very soft, warm, and stretchy hat that doesn't bind. The color is all-natural. It was a joy to work with the yarn - so much that I bought two more skeins to make something for myself!

Seed stitch, eh? I think I'll go look that one up.
