Chunky Hat

After making the Mackinaw hat (http://sweetposydreams.blogspot.com/2011/09/finished-object.html) a few weeks ago (which, by the way, is too big for my son and which my daughter said looks like cocker spaniel ears, nice!), I thought a scarf of the loop stitch I had just learned would be fun.  So I bought some super bulky wool blend gray yarn.  I played around with different variations of a loop stitch scarf, some of which were pretty cute, but ultimately decided it wasn't working for me.



So I frogged that and found a pattern for super bulky yarn on Ravelry, http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/big-button-hat, and made yet another hat.  How many hats does a girl need?  The only snag I ran into was finding size 11 double pointed needles.  I like the result, but I still have a skein and a third of super bulky gray yarn to use up.  Gift hat? Hmmm.
