Here is another item I made during hurricane Sandy. It is a hat made from doubled yarn. Although it took me couple of days to put a .pdf together and put it on line, I knitted this hat in a couple hours. The hat comes with a simple scarf as a bonus.
This hat is knitted on double pointed needles. The two yarns of different colors make this hat interesting looking, so there was no need for more elaborate pattern. Advanced beginner should be able to handle this task, IMHO.
You can use even leftovers and make the hat very colorful. So if you have any one in your family that has an American Girl Doll, you could make a beautiful inexpensive gift for them.
You can purchase this PATTERN via Paypal for $3.00

Happy knitting, ladies and gentlemen.
