Just the other day, I was browsing my melange of knitting websites when I came accross a link to Knit Like a Pirate. Now, apart from a slightly damp head and smelling a bit of soggy sheep, I have a brand new hat!


Hot off the needles, on my head, pre-dryer.


On my head, fresh out of the dryer. Shaped with safety pins.

It seems I don't take the greatest pictures of myself all of the time, even if I have a mirror for help.  Cheesy  I took about twenty photos, this being the best.

The yarn is Paton's Classic Merino in black, doubled and knit up on US 13 29-inch circs. It took about 2 1/3 skeins. (The pattern calls for 600 yards of wool.)

I intend to add it to my POTC Depp-wear. The rest of my pirate wear can be found here, including a pre-dryer picture with my cell phone, to model size.

Savvy?

The size of pre-felted and post-felted items always just amazes me.

It's a great hat! Everyone should have one ... I hope y'all made one and post the pictures.

And yes, felting is always a little surprising. I need to felt more hats ... I think a cloche would be nice. Smiley

I am a Pirates of the Caribbean addict too and will definitely be making one of these!! (I'm in love with Captain Davy Jones so I may have to add some barnacles  Smiley)

(Hmm, maybe we should have a Pirate knitalong for the upcoming Talk Like a Pirate Day on Sept. 19)?
