Breaking All The Rules Hat - finished

I finished my hat and have started on another smaller version to fit a child. My hat uses 90 sts but could have used 80 instead for a better fit. The one for a child's head is 60 sts. When you start the decreasing you use k8, k2 tog and continue in the pattern. This is a great way to use up extra little balls of yarn. I plan on making a bunch for my charity, Steven's Comfy Toes. A scarf can be done the same way by just casting on 20 - 25 sts and knitting back and forth on the rows until the desired length is done. You can see the pattern (pdf) on the following page: Breaking All The Rules Hat. I plan on doing some with the I-Cord top knot, a tassel or a pom pom.
