Here's my first attempt at knitting a hat using 2 colors. It was something I had been avoiding for the longest time. It turned out to be OK. The trick is trying to keep the two balls of yarn from getting tangled up. I haven't figured that out, especially when I have to put it down and then pick it up again later. It was for this reason that I didn't call this a "mindless knitting" hat, otherwise the pattern is pretty easy to memorize. This is my 9th hat for the Cap Karma Chemo Cap Project this year. This hat fits me perfectly, so that would make it a ladies xs/s size.

Stitches used in this hat include:
Ridge Check Pattern, BW2 pg 36
Stockinette Stitch, BW1 pg 10

The two color wasn't that bad now, was it? Yes, keeping the two skeins apart can sometimes be a problem. In crocheting, we work top down, so I leave the one not being used in the cap and the one being used out.

Very nice! It's cute as can be, and a great intro to two colors!
