i made a new beanie, but to tell you the truth,
i'm not very fond of this yarn, it's too fuzzy for my liking,
but oh well, it's pretty warm and i like how it came out.
it's for my robot obsessed friend.
i finished it in a couple of days cause i kept putting it off.
it's it's done though, so yay !





EDIT TO ADD: pattern and chart
CO 85 sts. (a lot for jiffy, i know but i made my swatch and that's what it called for. the 85 sts also allow for 10 sts of seam allowance when you have to seam up the hat.)
next row: begin 1x1 rib for about an inch or however long you want it to be.
next row: knit
next row: purl
next row: start working on the chart.
next row: knit
next row: purl

decreases: (i'm not that good at decreases you you might have better ways to decrease.)

next row: k7, *k2 tog; rep from * to end
next row: purl
next row: k6, *k2 tog; rep from * to end
next row: purl
next row: k5, *k2 tog; rep from * to end
next row: purl
next row: k4, *k2 tog; rep from * to end
next row: purl
next row: k3, *k2 tog; rep from * to end
next row: purl
next row: k2, *k2 tog; rep from * to end
next row: purl
next row: k1, *k2 tog; rep from * to end
next row: purl
next row: k2 tog to end
next row: purl
next row: k2 tog to end
pull yarn through remaning sts and sew side seams together.

here's the graph


this graph can be adapted to worsted weight yarn as well. just make sure you center the robots but it should be easily done. i did my original testing of the chart with w.w. and it came out pretty nice.

anyway, if you have any questions i'd be happy to answer them.
i also have a bigger and more detialed version of the robot if anyone wants to toy around with it. i've yet to use it on something but i might do it on a sweater or something cool like that.
