Bamboozled: A Hat

This hat is my second for this week, meeting my goal for week 18!  So happy I've been able to meet that goal each and every week so far.  Hopefully that will continue.

I happen to like the word "bamboozled".  It just makes me smile.  So, when I stumbled across the bamboo stitch, I knew a hat would have to be designed, just so I could call it Bamboozled!!  



I made this with a superwash merino wool blend that I just happened to have, but I imagine it would look great in any fiber at all! This is a super simple pattern that is only 2 rows, so it's easy to memorize too!  

 
Schnapps helped me work out the crown decrease too!

Of course the pattern is free.  It may also be found on Scribd.com as a PDF

  2. I'm working on the body but it's going to fall off my needles before it gets 7 inches long. Is there meant to be this many stiches?
