I'm in Toledo. I was a dedicated craftster, but I have strayed into flickr-land. Nice to see there are others near by Cheesy

Yay! My first challenge Cheesy

I first saw this mask right here on Craftster. As soon as I saw it, I had to make it Smiley I've needed a reason to get it out and take pictures Smiley What better reason than a challenge?

I used a pattern from a vintage McCall's Needlework magazine. The pattern is for a child size mask, so I just used a thicker yarn and followed the pattern. The only thing I changed was the hair color and style. I used tassels instead of pompoms.
Please don't have nightmares because of it, lol.

Thank you for the lovely words everyone. For those who are inexperienced in making hats, I say go for it. They are easy and fast and very wearable, not to mention fun.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Hat Goodness (image heavy, dial up users beware) on: January 06, 2006 12:41:39 PM

This hat makes me think of a strawberry. The pattern is from an older Cast On and the yarn is Cascade 220.


This is DH's hat. I used the frivol hat pattern and Knitpick's Wool of the Andes or merino, I can't remember. It has been dubbed "Th Birthday Cake."


I saved the best for last. This is my favorite to date. I based it off a free pattern on Elann and is a mix of Paton's and Knitpick wool. There are no charts for the fair isle with the pattern, so I had to make my own. I also cheated by making the the top flat so I wouldn't have to make new charts for the lower stitch counts. The ribbon is actually covering up a mistake. I was going to make a picot edge around the bottom of the hat, but changed my mind after I was unwilling to rip it all out. So, to cover up the mistake, I threaded a ribbon through.

Hope everyone had a good holiday season. I look forward to more knitted gift pictures.

It sounds like you are looking for a hooded scarf. Perhaps it looked like this : http://countrywool.tripod.com/kits_patterns/hat_sc.htm It's about halfway down the page. You could easily add a pompom. Hope this helps.

I used the exact same yarn to make this hat http://www.livejournal.com/talkread.bml?journal=knitting&itemid=75126 The pattern worked up fast and the hat looks great.
