2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / dit dit dit da da da... hat! on: July 26, 2005 10:41:53 PM
Project: Morse Code Hat!
Pattern:  k2p2 ribbing, decrease for crown same as kittyville hat from snb.
Yarn:  (all left overs) alpaca yarn (brown), merino wool in *glazed carrot*, and some tweedy ecru rowan yarn (rowan cork?)
Needles: US 8's, Denise Interchangeable
Dimensions:  7.5' in height, fit's one redhead's head in diameter



the orange intarsia says *i am stinky la la* in morse code.  it's subtle enough so that most people won't realize that there's a hidden message, yet the inside joke is so fun!  i think the next hat will be done in the round and will feature a spiraling message in morse code.  whaddya all think?  

p.s.  this is my first post on craftster!  
wheeeeeee!
*update*
thanks for all the comments  Grin
