Jester Hat - by Woolly Wormhead
Here's what Ruth had to say about this pattern: I love this hat, for the sheer simplicity of design. It can be knit on any gauge and can have from 1 to 3 ears/points (is there a technical name for the jester 'prongs'?) I have made it with 4, yet it got a bit tight on the needles... still, it can be done. The 2 or 1 point versions can even be knit on straights if you're not keen on working in the round. Convert it to crochet? No problem. The only thing I'd say about working in the round - due to the nature of the rapid increases at the top, I think circulars would be a bit tricky - they get tight enough on DPN's. The only other disadvantage I can think of right now is that psychologically, it can be a bit of a chore working towards the top.... most knitted hats decrease towards the crown and the thought of the end being near is a pleasant one. Here, it's the reverse... but hang in there and I promise you won't be disappointed.
Rollin' Beret - by Woolly Wormhead
Here's what Ruth had to say about this pattern: Tom keeps pointing out to me that I'm not writing any of the patterns down that I develop... Y'know, my hats just seem to grow all by themselves. Anyhow, here's one that has stuck in memory and been scribbled down for all to share. It's even been tested twice. Rock on.
