hat & warmers

wristwarmers are all well and good. and i've made quite a few. but they are way more often with matching accessories. or, perhaps, as matching accessories? like this crazy seussian hat.









the hat is a simple 2x1 rib in wool yarn on size 10 needles. near the top there was not quite enough yarn for anything else, but too much to just throw out. so i decided to add a bit of whimsy. the bit at the top is a 4 stitch i-cord. keeping up the stripe was a bit complicated and took a bit of attention. i'm not quite sure how i did it, but rest assured that it is possible. oh, and that clearly had to be topped off with a tassel.

Thank you knitten ninja for sharing this lovely hat! I've been looking everywhere for a pattern to shape the crown of the 2x1 rib hat I'm knitting and was hoping you could share with me how you decreased in this stitch pattern. Thanks again.
