This Lotus hat took no time at all, and for the amount of effort that went into it, the results were ten times better. Hats don't generally take too long to knit as it is, but this pattern produced a hat that looks way more complicated than it actually was.
I was going through my yarn stash recently, and even though I haven't purchased yarn in months, the amount of yarn that I have is nonetheless out of control. So now I'm pretty much just sifting through my available yarn and trying to tag future projects onto it. So this hat was conceived out of the need to start using up some yarn. I don't usually pick such bright colors for items I'm going to keep for myself, but I figured I would switch things up a bit :)
