Johnny B Warm Hat
"Diagonal knit patterns always catch my eye. So, when I needed a quick unisex hat, knitting it diagonally seemed like the right answer to me. I searched around for some various short row techniques until I found one that was perfect for my needs. It’s actually the easiest way to do short rows I’ve ever tried, and it helps give the hat the shaping it needs. The Johnny B Warm Hat is a great stash-buster as it is made holding 3 or 4 strands of yarn (depending on the size) together as one."
