I’m such a sucker for garter stitch.
The barefoot rooster made a couple of these awesome hats a while back. I thought to myself, yes, indeed, that is a fine fine hat but I don’t really need a super warm wool hat. Then it got cold in Nashville. Then I saw this post: another super hero helmet hat. And I thought to myself, today is the day.
So, I ball and a half of Rowan big wool in pepto-pink (#30, tricky? looks like it’s been discontinued …) — that I once really thought I’d use for a sweater — and a couple of hours later: instant hat! It’s bright pink and awesome and I’m wearing it to school tomorrow.
Also, Alice can control your thoughts with her kitty lasers. Just FYI.
