Continental hats :)

I don't think I will be knitting english style ever again. I have been wanting to learn continental style for quite some time now because it looks much faster and I finally forced myself to complete two hats using it. I normally start trying to learn but give up after a few rows because it is akward and I grow impatient. This time I did it and I LOVE it. I am already knitting faster than I was before and I think I will continue to get quicker and quicker. These hats are Banana Republic knock offs. I found the pattern on craftster it was a really fast and easy knit and I would recommend it to anyone. I still need to find some pretty buttons to put on it :)

Continental is all I know how to do - and not many other knitters I know do it too! English seems more popular, and I'm not really sure why. I hear the stitches are supposed to be more even, but I've never had a problem with that.
Glad you've come over to the Continental. It's fast over here.
