I've never participated in a KAL here and I was perusing while thinking up a good present for my friend Mark's birthday. Bingo baby!
I knit this hat using the Basic Hat Recipe, which was so easy to follow. (I gotta say though, I even made a swatch to follow the recipe and the hat is too big and recommended ribbing too long...oh well).
I made him a pair of Cigar in the same colors for xmas...so winged the pattern on this hat to have coordinating stripe patterns. And then the January KAL Challenge element--Morse Code!--says "M A R K" on the front. Yay! This was fun.
Here's a mirror pic of it on my head--so it says "K R A M" (heh) and then I tried to take a straight on pic to show the Morse Code.
So it's: --(M) .-(A) .-.(R) -.-(K) <---and if that's not right, don't tell me! :rofl:
