During a visit over the summer last year I was gifted a lovely ball of dark blue/teal wool by a friend of my dad's when she found out I was learning to knit and was excited to show me her own projects and stash. I was left pondering what to do with it since it was a wonderful colour but I only had the one ball whose yardage was unrecorded. I was looking around for easy hat patterns on the web when I stumbled across the "wurm hat," a fun and deceptively simple pattern that looks great in two colours. The only tasks left were to find someone to make it for and to find a good complementary colour. I brought the blue yarn to my local yarn lady and she helped me pick out a suitable complement of similar texture to go with the blue.
The two best options for a second colour were a mid-grey and this green. Since I knew I was knitting it for someone with very bright orange hair and pale blue/green eyes, I wanted something that would set off his features and I went for the green! So the end product is what I am calling the "Simic Wurm hat" (for all you Magic payers out there!) This was the second hat I ever made and its stretchy segmented form makes it probably my favourite. Vision (not his real name, obviously) says it fits like a dream and the night I gifted it to him he wore it home because he had forgotten his other hat.
Pattern is easily searchable, it's fairly popular. The green yarn used was Galway worsted wool, the blue was similar but had no label.
