[knitting] A Quick Hat with Ears

Starsky has stalled at the top of the back. I wanted a quick project to make so I wound a single skein of Colinette Point Five with my handy-dandy new ball winder and umbrella swift.

I cast on 32 stitches onto US size 15 (16 inch circulars) needles, knit all the way up (for a rolled brim) and closed off the top using the kitchener stitch.

Because I didn't decrease for the crown and closed off top straight, there were naturally ear-looking corners. I used spare yarn to define them more and voila.
