Where’s Your Head At


This was an incredibly quick knit.

Jasper Rib Beanie

And when in use, it looks like this.

This took one skein of Berroco Jasper that I bought from All About Yarn. I used size 4.5 mm needles (starting with dpn, then changing over to 16″ circulars as soon as I was able to.)

I came upon doing this after working the whirlpool toe in the Cat Bordhi’s sock book. After working the toe for the Spiraling Master Coriolis sock (or is that Master Spiraling Coriolis sock?) I looked at what I had done and thought, “That looks like a little hat!” With the drop in temperatures within the past couple weeks, I realized that I was without hat, and this project was born. I think I would be over estimating if I said that it took eight hours total.

Let me know if you are interested in directions for it, and I will write some up.

OH! BTW, Ann Budd is aware of the sweater now. (Hi, Ann!) A friend of mine happens to work with her, little did I know. She pointed Ann in the direction of this blog. And Ann says?????

It’s my design.

  1. Way to go, Ann! How nice that she took the time to get in touch with you.
    The hat’s great – isn’t odd that one can knit an entire hat in less time than one can install a zipper?

  2. Well, of course it’s your design. Told ya so.

  3. The hat looks great!!! Of course we want directions!

  4. That’s a nice hat.
    And it’s also really sweet of Ann to say it’s your sweater.

  5. *Love* the hat!

  6. Oh I love that hat! How ingenious! Face it, you’re a designer at heart. Even Ann says it’s so. 🙂

  7. See, it is your sweater! Will you be writing it up for Knit n’ Style? Or maybe Mr. Penney insists on having the only one. Great hat, yet another Patrick Original Design. Kaffe Fassett, look out!

  8. Not only do I subscribe to your blog, but I grew up in Baltimore and still have family there. My favorite cousin lives in Belair, and I will be in Balto. from 3/17- 3/27. Maybe I’ll be able to make your day again one day in March:)

  9. How cool that you heard back from Ann! You should publish the pattern. It’s beautiful!
