I know, I know. It looks SO hat-like, right? I thought the same thing. I am really enjoying knitting this now that I have it figured out. I knit 5 rows on it at SnB, and knit about 10 rows on it last night. It is using 98 sts on a size 7 needle. The construction of this garter stitch item is phenomenal in my opinion. I would have never thought of it. Thanks again Kelle for the use of the pattern.
