Honey is a hat inspired by a stitch I saw in a vintage sweater pattern. I adapted it to work in the round and with my yarn/gauge. The decreases are decorative and interesting, as well. The pattern is written for a slouchy hat, but you can easily make it more fitted by knitting less repeats. Knit with DK weight yarn and 4mm (US 6) knitting needles, the pattern consists of a lot of purling, but works up relatively fast. Especially if you're shooting for a more fitted hat and work less repeats of the main pattern. The main stitch pattern has a two-photo explanation, if the written directions are not clear enough. The PDF is 4 pages: title, 2 pages of directions, then a plain-type pattern pattern page for those who don't want to print photos.

My mom taught me to crochet a granny square. I made a giant one and gave it to my cat. A few weeks later, I was on to reading patterns. A year later, I picked up some knitting needles. I've been knitting and crocheting my evenings away since.
