Ribbed Halfdome done!

I had a bunch of time on Saturday while being the “designated driver” for our house at the Lace Guild meeting, and finished up my Halfdome variant. This is the basic Halfdome hat from Knitty, done in-the-round based on Puddock’s instructions. I made it after finishing the Halfdome for a friend of mine at work. I didn’t care for the rolled brim, so I put two inches of ribbing on my version. I’m not 100% happy with it, but it will make a good cool-weather hat, I think, for the late fall or early spring when a really warm watch cap isn’t really needed. I may rip out a couple of rows and fix the pointy bit right at the top, if I get the energy.

I grew up in New England, moved to the Carolinas in '98 to start working at what was then a large regional bank and is now a really big nationwide bank. I work doing intranet content management and intranet site management. After work, I practice Aikido, knit, ride my motorcycle, read, watch movies & eat. I've been studying Aikido since 2014, and I ride an old Honda Shadow. Someday I want to go skydiving, and I am pretty sure that I want to hike the Appalachian Trail someday.
