Knitted Corkscrew Hat

I did this hat for knitpurlhunter’s July 2014 mystery KAL: http://knitpurlhunter.com/kal/

This was my first kint-along, and it was an interesting experience.  When Clue #2 was revealed, and I saw that it involved 2-color stranded color work AND cables, I almost dropped out.  But I kept going with it, and the result is very interesting.

I also learned a new method for making a button hole.

Also, I discovered a new yarn – Hikoo Simplicity by Skacel.  Soooo nice.  I love this yarn – it’s so soft, and stretchy, a pure joy to work with.  I want to make more stuff with this yarn!
