My loom has been sitting on my lap, and the yarn slipping through my fingertips as I finished this hat. In the first picture, the brim folded up. The second the brim down. I used the Flexee loom—80 pegs for an adult hat. The yarn didn’t come with a label though it was a gift, so the result is a gift. It did have the coolest way of changing. I think I spelled it wrong the last time I mentioned it—Ombre has gradually changed color. I’m left with just a little left, so not sure what to do with it.

The Flexee links can be arranged to keep track of stitches. I set mine up as the lavenders are knits and the purple purls. That way, I don’t lose my place during the rib making (knit 2, purl 2). The rest of the hat is a flat knit stitch.

The decrease in the crown is the most fun. I use Kristen’s way with my own adaptation for the Flexee links. After doing her final step, I move the loops over one to remove the next link, thereby removing 20 links, then I follow Kristen’s decrease once again and then close as she suggests. Here’s the YouTube.

This is how my crown looks:

I think it is cool. I hope the recipient will like it, too.

Here are the JusJoJan Rules:

1. Just Jot It January starts January 1st, but it’s never too late to join in! Here, we run on the honour system; the “jot it” part of JusJoJan means that anything you jot down, anywhere (it doesn’t have to be a post, it can even be a grocery list), counts as a “jot.” If it makes it to your blog that day, great! If it waits a week to get from a sticky note to your screen, no problem!

2. I’ll post prompts at 2am my time (GMT -5). The prompt will be the word in quotation marks in the title of my 2am post. You don’t have to follow the prompt every day, but that will be where you leave your link for others to see. You’ll get a prompt for every day except Wednesday, when the prompt is simply my One-Liner Wednesday and on Saturday, when your prompt will be the Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS, which will appear at about 9:30am Friday. Each prompt post will include the rules.

3. Please ping back or link to the daily prompt. To ping back, just copy the URL from the daily prompt post, and paste it anywhere in your post. Check to make sure your link shows up where you want it to, and go back occasionally to see other bloggers’ entries – the more you visit others, the more they’ll visit you! Note: A) The newest pingbacks will be at the top of the comments section. B) Ping backs only work if you’re blogging on WordPress. Everyone else must paste a link manually.

4. Tag your post JusJoJan and/or #JusJoJan.

5. Write anything! Any length will do! It can even be a photo or a drawing – you’re going to title it, right? There’s your jot!

6. If your post is NSFW, do not ping back. Please leave your link in the comments with a warning.

7. If you’d like to, use the JusJoJan badge (above) so that others can find your post more easily.

8. Have fun!
