Introducing Jumping Fences!

Well, hat #2 for this week is finished, but it is NOT what I expected it would look like at all!  Thank you Miriam for the name Jumping Fences..........she also suggested The Unexpected!  :) 

This was supposed to look like a diagonal rib and welt pattern, but as you can see........it does not!  I wasn't going to post the pattern, but some people said they would like to have it, so I will happily share it with all of you.  Remember that all my patterns are also on Ravelry in Robin Celli Designs and my 2 ebooks can be purchased there as well as right here through the blog.
