Way back in June, I saw Baigneuse's Decepticon hat
and showed it to The Boy. He, being a Transformers
fan was very excited about it and wanted one. Many hours of figuring out charts/gauge later, I started on his toque. I decided to knit it stranded, to avoid intarsia and seaming.
Front (or back)
Back (or front)
And, to hide all the strands, I made it reversible.
You know how sometimes when you make something for someone their response is less enthusiastic than you hoped? You know how that makes you feel like you spent all that time and it maybe wasn't worth it?
Now, picture the complete and total opposite reaction. I wish I had gotten his response on video. He actually jumped up and down when he saw it. Then he realized it had both Autobot and Decepticon icons and was even more excited. THEN he realized it was reversible.... Makes me want to make him more stuff... aww...
**I sat down today and wrote out the pattern. I'm trying out a file hosting site, and have the pdf up there. Please beware: This pattern has NOT been test knit. I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have. As usual, please use this pattern only for your own personal (i.e. not for sale) use. Transformers Toque Pattern
Let the insanity begin/continue.
