Here's something I've been working on for a while -This hat was inspired by a hat I saw in a crowd shot of an alpine event during the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, BC. There were so many great knitted hats on display at the games this year. I only caught a glimpse, but I was instantly drawn to the checkerboard design. Here in Indianapolis, the racing capital of the world, we’re mighty fond of checkered designs. I think this would be great worked up in college team colors - Hummm - do I have any maize and blue in the stash?
