Blue Unoriginal Hat

I enjoyed knitting my Unoriginal Hat by the Yarn Harlot so much that I had to knit another one!

I bought some Tweedle Dee yarn at Michaels on Black Friday for $1.99 to make more. I knitted it in one sitting, in about 3.5 hours! 🙂

The official rules are mark with bold the things you have knit at least once, with italics the ones you plan to do sometime, and leave the rest. I’m changing it up a little. I am going to bold the techniques I have done. I italizcising everything else because, truly, I want to try it all. My notes in parentheses.
