Although Zeus is fashion-conservative, I hope he realizes that he rocks the very "fashion-forward" conical-bobble look. I suspect this is because he is so cavalier about his image? "Sigh!" It is always the ones who do not care, who always look cool...
Ooooooooooo, I love the yellow ascot! Did you use a pattern??
Yes, the pattern is from the 2007 holdiay edition of Interweave Knits: "Huckleberry Ascot". I like the pattern, but the ascot came out too short for me so I extended the length by picking up stitches at the ends and knitting several rows before applying the bobbles.
You should be totally proud of this hat!! I am impressed with how you figured out how to knit the brim. In the first (I think it's the first) Stitch and Bitch book there's a pattern for the newsboy hat and it has instructions for knitting a brim. Even with the instructions it didn't make sense to me, so I think you did an awesome job just figuring it out on your own. If you can provide a tutorial that would be super!
Beautiful work, snarkymarmoset! I knit the irish wristwarmers on straight needles and then seamed them. Would you mind sharing the pattern for knitting these on dpns? I'm afraid my brain won't let me figure out how to do that!
