Caps for Kids Swirled Ski Cap

Pattern: Caps for Kids Swirled Ski Cap from Knitting For Peace

Wool-Ease from the stash

Needles: US 7 & 8

Dates: May 2007

Comments: A cool hat pattern, with some interesting variations possible (every section a different color, all in one color, etc.). I hated weaving in all the ends! It would have been better if I had figured out how to carry the non-used color up the side as I worked.

First time with a pom-pom maker, and I got a little carried away, so it came out a little big.

I used Elizabeth Zimmerman's sewn cast off after I did the ribbing, and it came out a little loose, so next time I think I'd do a normal cast off.

I also would do it on smaller needles next time - I felt the fabric was a little loose.
