What are some fun knitting techniques i should try?

My church is doing a hat drive for a local homeless shelter and i am one of the people who pulled it together. And hats are really good to practice new techniques on because they are small. I've already done a fair isle one, and i want to try cabling and entrelac. Are there any others i should go for? I really want to bless these people with beautiful hats that are really warm i live in northern Illinois, so the winters are pretty cold. The drive starts January 1st but i'm getting started early.

Mock cables go very quickly, and have a much finer appearance than regular cables (and you don't have to pick up a cable needle every few stitches). I enjoy fan-and-feather stitch, moss stitch, and basket weave... aside from that, you might try using circulars or double-pointeds so you don't have to seam the hats. They go much more quickly, and when you finish knitting, you only have two ends to bury. One year I made 101 baby hats for "Knit One Save One"... and by the time I was done, my fingers and thumbs had holes worn in them from the tiny needles! Happy knitting!
