I bought a new stitch dictionary last week, and wanted to make something with it. So this last weekend, on a long ride to Vermont, I made up this pattern for a “rosehip” hat.
I’d consider this an intermediate project. You need to be compfortable with knitting on circular needles, knitting on double pointed needles, following a pattern, knitting, purling, doing a purlwise slip stitch, and decreasing.
You can find the full pattern here on my blog.
