Yes. Thank you. Can you do the rug next? It'll really tie the room together. Wink

haha - you know, bananaleg, the rug is probably beyond my skill level, but I challenge you to the task!

Whoa, this is amazing. And now  i am putting everything else hold to see if i can take this chart and make this into a quilt before xmas...

I love this. Its a subtle and clever homage to lebowski.

This pattern will  make an epic quilt! Can't wait to see it...

I just ordered the yarn in the colorways of this hat...Grin.



Drop down the needle size on this one, too! I think the chart numbers are comparable to the Redrum hat...

I made a test hat for size and it was too large for hubby, so I need to make some changes (or just drop down a few needle sizes)...glad I did the test! Grin

I am also changing out the colorway...I found the original tiles and it says they were brown, orange and claret (a wine color?)...fortunately I have those yarns so as soon as I frog the brown ribbing, I am off again...I am determined to make this hat! Grin

I was wondering if you have an opinion about what is going on with the subject of your iconic hats, Bill Cosby...I know I am rather devastated by it all... Sad.

Yes, the colors are brown, orange and maroon - did you start this with a different colorway? I am definitely a tight knitter, so dropping down a needle size should help make it smaller for you.

I *just* made a shop announcement today on my blog and facebook regarding Cosby. I'm going to donate the proceeds from the hats to the Rape Crisis Center. I don't know what to think of the allegations, but I can't just keep going with the series without addressing it. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep going with the series though. I'll have to think about that...

I LOVE YOU!!!!

I just cast on my reddrum hat and now THIS!!!  One of my hubby's all time favorite movies!

what to do, what to do....Grin.

haha - well, I have to warn you, the dude is a much easier colorway. If you are new to stranded knitting, I'd start with this one, then do redrum, which is three colors and a bit more complicated. But both are do-able, so just jump in! Can't wait to see your versions of these...

I knitted The Dude's sweater into a hat pattern, because I don't have the commitment necessary to knit an actual sweater. This has been a popular request in my Etsy shop, so I thought all of you DIY-ers might want to give it a shot. Here's the chart - if you have questions, just let me know. I knitted this in worsted weight wool (Cascade 220) on size 5 (ribbing) and size 7 (chart) needles. The chart represents 1/4 of the hat.




If you knit this up, be sure to post photos and let me know how it turns out!

All your projects are so interesting and have such cool roots. You must have a great eye to catch these patterns in the films. Smiley

What can I say? I'm a child of the 80s and pop culture has permeated my very being. Thanks for the comment. Thanks for checking out my stuff.

I have the yarn but i forgot to ask what size needles did you use? 7?

I cast on with size 5 needles and knit a couple inches of ribbing, then changed to size 7 to knit the chart.

congrats!  I purchased yarn to make this hat!  It will be my first one with trying to do more colors other than stripes! Grin

I'll post if it is wearable and does not turn into a dog toy like lots of my other goofs! Grin

That's awesome. If you have any questions, just let me know! I hope it turns out great!
