The Windschief Hat is probably the quickest knit I’ve done in a really long time.  The pattern is so addictive and has the perfect balance of mindless stockinette with some interesting bits thrown in, in the form of twisted rib stitches.  Yarn overs and decreases makes the ribbing twist all the way to the top :: clev-ER.

This is a great pattern by designer Stephen West and definitely gets two thumbs up from me!  The only change I made to this hat was to knit it a tad bit longer than what the pattern called for.  Like I mentioned in my previous post, Vineet picked out the yarn and pattern for this hat and he absolutely loves it.  So, that’s a win!

Pattern: Windschief by Stephen West published in westknits
Yarn: Dream in Color Classy in “Grey Tabby” 
Needles: Size US 6 & 7/ 4 & 4.5 mm

Love the swirly top…

I’m glad my guy likes wearing the stuff I knit for him 🙂  Which brings me to a major guilty confession  – I’m seriously lagging behind on knitting for the kiddos!! Better get crackin’ on that Tiny Tea Leaves asap!
