We did not get the hurricane (at least not yet) in any way as strongly as some of my friends down the eastern seaboard did... but I decided to knit up a (very quick) hurricane hat to send off to the lovelyarns' 500 hat project. I would have finished it yesterday (aka the day I started it) but I was falling asleep while casting off, so I decided to just finish it up this morning. (The picture, by the way, is in my on-campus office... hence the halo of florescent light surrounding my head.)
Pattern: none. If you care to know: Cast-on 4 stitches. BEFORE joining in the round, increase to 8 by knitting f&b into each stitch. Join in the round, knit 1 row. Continue increasing 2 sts per dpn (assuming you have 4 dpns with sts on them and 1 to knit with) until you have 48 sts. Knit until you [almost] run out of yarn. Bind-off using EZ's sewn bind-off.
Yarn: Berroco Sundae, less than one skein (I had used about 2 yards of it to finish off a previous hat)
Needles: US 13 dpns
Instantaneous gratification, indeed!
