- They are quick to knit, even at a fine gauge.
- Everybody loves hats, just about. I know that I can never have too many.
- I can put them on consignment at the LYS and make a profit because of the minimal labor cost.
- If they do not sell at the shop, then they make a great gift. (Yeah, that's tacky. "Ummm, hey, here's a hat, made just for you, that no one else wanted to buy..." What the hell, I am tacky!)
- They are a great use for small quantities of yarn, as shown below:
This is a hat that will (hopefully) use only one ball of Kureyon to knit, using what may be my favorite "mindless-when-I-don't-feel-like-I'm-being-lobotomized-with-stockinette" stitch, Feather and Fan. It' s a simple knit, and I will post the pattern when the knitting is complete. Then, because I have an addictive personality, I will probably start another.
