Last week I finished a hat for Turk's mother. I went through a few patterns before I settled on Graham by Jennifer Adams. The pattern is simple, perfect for TV knitting. I love the texture of the hat. The only modification I made was to start the decreases before what the pattern calls for. It is now more of a fitted beanie and less of a slouchy one. I also used twisted stitches for the brim. It has a neater more defined rib than if I had not twisted the stitches.
