Two, Two, Two Hats in One!

Posted by Hello So, I'm pretty pleased with my version of EZ's Very Warm Hat. A most adaptable pattern...make one basic stocking cap in the yarn of your choice, throwing in stripes, motifs, mosaics, whatever--then pick up around the base of the first hat (you could use any provisional cast-on, but EZ suggests picking up in the purl bumps behind a long-tail cast-on--ez as pie) and do it again. First hat fits inside second hat and you have two, two, two hats in one! Thanks as always, Elizabeth Zimmermann (pattern in Knitting Around)

What a neat hat! It will be really warm this winter. I hope your office isn't cold enough this winter for both the Dickensian gloves and the hat! - Christina P (from KR)
