Project Details and Feedback
Duration of Project: December 21st to December 22nd, 2010
Made for: Me!!
Modifications: I repeated the last row twice and did a knit 1 at the end. I did this because I was uncomfortable with having 17 end stitches so this created a nice tight closing.  I also made this hat in the round.
Make this pattern again? I really liked this knit.  I was pretty wonderfully interesting and very fast.  If I do it again I think I would add some knitting rows (rows 12 and 13) after row 21 to make it a bit longer because it is just long enough.  

 What I learned/practiced in this pattern:  I practiced knitting cables and learned to convert a knitted flat piece to a knitting in the round piece.

 *This project was named lovingly in honor of it's resemblance to a brain.
