While I was knitting Tiffany's family their hats, my brother and sister-in-law came to Wichita to visit Sis and I. Sister-in-law asks about what I was knitting, so I explained it to her. She then asked if I would knit her a couple of ponytail hats and I said, "Sure!" I sent her to the store to get worsted weight yarn. She came back bearing 4 skeins yarn for two hats.
Waffle Hat by Gail Bable. It was one of the patterns I found on Ravelry while looking for hats for Tiffany's bunch. It was knitted on US#6. I cast on 96 stitches. The Waffle pattern would have looked way better in a solid or a more subtle variegated. I moved the ponytail hole up to 3 1/2 inches from the bottom edge. It seemed to fit better there. I started the crown decrease at 5 1/2 inches cause none of us really like the slouch look. I didn't keep the band off the yarn so I can't tell you what color way it was except it was some CraftSmart Value Yarn.
The second hat was the same hat pattern (Jogger's cap by Karen Steward Longest) I used for Sister Suzy's hat, moving the ponytail hole to 3 1/2 inches.
I hope everyone is having a good day!
