So it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that I made a hat (or that it’s red), seeing as winter has arrived. It will be a surprise that I finally switched it up and used a new type of pattern (click here to see!), one from knitty.com (a great site I just found last week that is full of FREE patterns).
The pattern was actually pretty easy to follow, but I had to add about fifteen extra rows in the middle to make it long enough, I think the yarn I was using was not as thick as the original pattern. (But of course, I’m too lazy to check the gauge, so it’s pretty much all my fault there!). The pom-poms were my own addition, mostly just because they are fun.
In the picture above, it looks like an alien head, but that only makes it cooler! Below is a side view of it on my head – it’s a perfect hat for when you have a really cute ponytail going on and don’t want to screw it up, but it’s so cold out that you need to have your ears covered. Yes, I realize that a headband could do the same job, but headbands don’t come with pom-poms now do they?
