What do you get when you try to knit the Oblique Hat with 2 leftover balls of yarn and run out of one color just before the decrease? I started out with 2 balls of yarn which were about the same size and I thought I had enough to make this hat... but I guess one ball was more densely wound and the other was more loosely wound cuz I ran out of the blue. I was getting worried about whether I would have enough red left, so I skipped some of the knit rounds in the decrease. Good thing I did that because I definitely would not have had enough yarn left over. It was very very close.
This is chemo cap #16 for Cap Karma's 2006-2007 season. I think this hat shows off the diagonal pattern of the Oblique Hat so much better than the photo you see in the pattern post.
When M saw the hat in the morning, she decided she wanted to put it on. When I did that, the hat covered her entire head down to her chin, LOL. She lifted it back up and then I decided to take a photo of her with the hat on. It actually came out relatively in focus. It's always a challenge for me to take photos of moving objects, and toddlers do not sit still!
