We interrupt the regularly scheduled knitting for a simple cotton hat.

A simple hat was needed for a birthday gift. My nephew Kurtis loves his winter hat I knit for him...so I decided to knit him a cotton one for his birthday.
He has hair like me...well, my hair has settled down over the years...and this curly hair sometimes needs a hat.
I picked up some freedom cotton at the sale the other day (well, I picked up more than that, but that is for another post!) and came up with this...

David doesn't have a head as big as Kurtis, but you get the idea. Cool? I don't really know...but I hope he wears it!
Here is my attempt at jogless rounds...

This technique needs some work...but it's not too bad. Maybe blocking will help!

Happy Birthday Kurtis!

Hey, have you tried this variation of the jogless jog? You basically move the jog point every round so they don't stack up and so it is less noticeable.
