The magic of short rows and built-in i-cord

To escape the fiddleyness of the fingerless gloves, I worked up EZ's Katmandu hat over the course of a couple of days. It's pink!

Pattern: Katmanu hat, by Elizabeth Zimmermann (in Knit One Knit All)
Yarn: Cascade 220 Wool, in colorway 9478 ('Cotton Candy') - a little more than half a skein
Needles: US8
Modifications: None

The cleverness of EZ's patterns never ceases to amaze me. This hat requires no seaming (yay!)

Even though my gauge matched that for the larger hat, it does not fit me the way it fits the model in the book - mine is much more snug. I must have a big head.

But not this CareBear.
