i'm back to this website after a long time of absence. truth is i've been really uber depressed and havn't wanted to do anything at all, even be crafty. truly, i was lost. until recently i just decided to pick up those trusty knitting needles and knit my busted lil heart out... yah ANWAY... i knit a couple scarfs and some other things, but i'll post them later.. cuz this
puppy, i'm really proud of...
here's the picture from the pattern...
i got the pattern off this website http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/patterns.htm
it has a bunch of lovely little hat patterns, it is just a lovely page of loveliness actually.
they call it the Amelia Earhart Aviator Cap, the pattern is lengthy but i managed to tackle it only ripping it out three times! yah... but it was for my halloween costume so i was determined to finish it. and i did.
it's knit mostly in the knit/purl fashion with some increasing/decreasing and some wrapping/turning(this is what i found tricky at first but i got it pretty well figuired by my third attempt)an ambitious beginer or intermediate knitter should be able to handle this pattern pretty easily once you get going. i'll be glad to help anyone that wants to make this hat and has questions... http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/kpatt07.htm
it took two skeins of yarn, i chose a soft wooly chocolate brown... i'm in love with it, i have to figuire out what else to wear it with beside my halloween costume. i also want to knit another one in some different color... green maybe.
anyway... here's a picture of me from halloween in my hat. i was a gun moll.
