Moss Stitch Hat

I've been offline for a while. Thought I'd post this hat I did recently. I did the body of the hat in moss stitch which made a nice texture.

That is a nice hat, I have heard the term "flat top" never knew what to look for, I really like the way that top finishes. Nice work!

Thanks. A nice swirled flat top can look really good on certain hats.

I love the moss stitch, the texture is really appealing especially in that cerulean blue. The hat has a Swedish feel- those are the Swedish national colors.

This is my first project using moss stitch and I agree it's a great texture.

Another great job, Mason. It's been interesting watching you go from the basic scarf into exploring techniques and stitches. I hope you';ve been taking notes...your fan club over at knittinghelp.com is correct - you could get an interesting book out of this "journey" .

Thanks. I thinks pretty much every knitter goes through the same learning process. I doubt anyone would want to read about mine. LOL

Hmmmm, is "unique" the same as "special" when referring to the kids who ride the short bus? 0.o

Mason, you need to slow down, you're making the rest of us look bad....*slinks over the corner*
