|What's that creeping up over the hills?|
Please note: the Kex Blanket is going to take a little longer!
|Don't be ridiculous! Spring is here!|
|Roo - you've either got terrible dandruff, or that is SNOW!|
I have to say that I wasn't totally convinced by this pattern while I was working on it. My instinct is to over-complicate, and I couldn't accept that knitting a scarf, seaming it, and then knitting sideways for the brim and crown would produce anything approaching a shapely piece of headwear. Oh how wrong I was! Trust the Rock Star Knitter, Roo!
|Yup! Snow. Sigh.|
See, what you have here is a recipe for a funky slouchy hat. You could adapt it in so many ways to suit the wearer. I was thinking a band of piratical purple skulls and crossbones would go down pretty well in some circles, with a striped black and neon yellow body. And actually you could use a good self-striping sock yarn (Goth Socks anyone?) and a plain colour (shocking pink!) for the crown and brim.
|Strangely lop-sided at rest|
|Love this detail!|
FuturePrimitive soaps released their new spring range the other day... a bar of Gossamer Ghost has my name on it, I reckon!
