My First Knit A Long

Ravelry is one of my guilty pleasures. I can stay on the site for hours looking at patterns and yarn and yarn and patterns. One of the things that interested me was something listed as a KAL. Looking that up, I found out it was a Knit A Long. Groups of people knit an item at the same time. Some are mystery KALs and you are only given bits of the pattern at a time and you don't know until the end what you are making. For my first KAL, I was not that brave. I picked a hat KAL. I knew what it looked like before I started and I liked the look of the hat. I did do a modification of the pattern and changed it to a beret instead of the slouchy hat it was originally. I think it turned out ok.
