The Digit HatFebruary 4, 2008
The hat you've been waiting for! Inspired by the gigantor paws of Mr. Digit, the magical cat Who Is Not Dead, I used a larger version of the classic Cat's Paw lace motif and designed a hat for your cold noggin! It's a super-quick knit, and you have plenty of yarn to cast on for one right NOW.
I made the green and gray ones out of stash Lamb's Pride, worsted , took maybe half a skein each, maybe a little more. The light green/yellow one is out of Classic Elite Lush, and took a single ball (50g). You're just like me -- I know you have those precious balls of yarn, single skeins, and you don't know what to do with them. This is just the ticket!
Wanna see how they look?
See? It's lace, but light. Just gives it that flash of class, but doesn't overdazzle.

And from the top (look at that angora halo, yum):
I made one in Paton's Decor for my sister-in-law and I like the way the colors pooled:
I also thinks it looks fabulous on a cat named Waylon:
I would not dare do that to the hat's namesake:
Wrong! Side! Of! Door! (Digit story here if you missed it)
Enjoy! Hooray! (PS - I Ravelry'd it, too.... xox)
