New WIP for Christmas

This one’s for my sister. Please excuse the ridiculous look on my face… I can’t seem to help that with the webcam. >.I don’t know what I’ll call it, but it’s a Fibonacci sequence jester-thing hat that I’m decreasing twice every four rows. I’m a little worried that it will be closed up too quickly– that is, finished much too soon– but I’m going to continue as-is until I see some sort of disastrous result.

It’s pretty sweet though. =D I’m using 10 different colors/types of yarns, and alternating them in 7 stripe sizes (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13). I could have gone up one more size (21), but I was worried there wasn’t going to be enough variation in the stripes width and color mix.

It’s free form, based on the basic tube = hat principle, with a rolled stockinette edge, and regular k2tog decreases along the back seam/color jump.

It’s supposed to be ridiculous. It’s working so far!

I also might modify my dad’s hat again, because it looks rather ridiculous as well, and that wasn’t as planned for. I don’t know. I’m going to ask him and then see.
