Koolhaas: Finished

I think it's pretty obvious that this hat is awesome, considering that there are almost 2,000 of them on Ravelry! 2,ooo knitters can't be wrong. This pattern appears to be daunting upon first glance, but like most knitting, once it clicks, its not that bad at all. Oh, yeah, you probably want to see some pictures.

This is an example of the perfect yarn for the perfect pattern. The Debbie Bliss Rialto Aran is squishy and soft and stretchy. It was a little splitty to work with, but it was worth it for the great stitch definition. Next up is the Inga hat, which is my first foray into fair isle. I had a pretty good system, until I realized that I needed to twist the yarns on the long floats, and I haven't figured out a good way to do this. Internet, here I come!
