Let's Party!

This is a free pattern (you're welcome!) and a nice break from the slouchy berets that seem to have taken over the knitting world like mice in a feed shed. Plus, this pattern only has 320 projects as of this writing, so you won't have to worry about being one of fifty knitting this in your SnB.  (Am I the only one obsessed with being original? Ok, then...)
This is actually designed to be a man's hat, but you'll see that it is very versatile and looks great on women and children as well.  The designer recommends worsted yarn and size 9 needles, so it should be a relatively quick knit. (Note: I think it's hard to believe that I didn't hire these people to do a photo shoot for this post.  These are all their regular Ravelry project photos! Be sure to tell them how cute they are in the comments.)


Another Note: I was honestly about to pack this thing up when, yesterday, OSKA got a Facebook "like," seemingly out of the blue.  Since it happened on the same day I was going to hit the big DELETE button and pull the life support on the blog, I took it as a sign that this blog has value.  So, let's get back into the swing of things, shall we?
