Sockhead Hat

"Sockhead Hat:" a free pattern from Ravelry (click HERE for link)

Super slouchy,
Super stripey,
Super simple...

For this hat, I used Knit Picks Yarn:  Felici Sport Self-Striping in the colorway "Alexandrite".  A fun use for pretty sock yarn!  This would be a good for males or females, depending of course upon which yarn you choose.  I have to admit the four inches of knit 2, purl 2 ribbing was a bit tedious... I took lots of breaks... but once I got to the stockinette, it was much faster.  This hat calls for nine inches of stockinette, after the four inches of ribbing, before the decreases begin... on tiny US 2 needles.  There are 144 stitches per round. That's a lot of little stitches.
