A hat, and the beginnings of a scarf

I've been meaning to make an interesting-looking beanie-like hat for a while now, and when I saw this pattern I knew this would be it.

I made my ribbed brim about an inch or so shorter than the pattern said, so I could wear it unfolded as a slouchy hat without it being too long.

I was also commissioned by a friend to knit an entrelac scarf, and I spent this morning playing around with it.

I've never knitted entrelac before, and I'm surprised at how fast it works. After the first couple of tiers everything gets a lot less confusing, the pattern is easy to remember, and it generally turns into an incredibly fun project! I'm really excited about this one.

(Also, knitting with merino will never not be a delight.)
