I devoured Jennifer Stafford's Domiknitrix knitting book while recovering from a serious car crash. I was so in love with the knitting patterns that I ignored both my rather limited ability to move and my basic-intermediate knitting skills in order to begin the awesome Mohawk hat, and consequently spent much of the time cursing the hat most roundly before throwing the entire mess across the room numerous times. Being that I REALLY, REALLY liked the Mohawk Hat, I was able to dust off the increasingly cat hair-covered project and keep trying. Then, suddenly, it became almost...easy. I was able to finish the hat after weeks of it languishing around attracting angry muttering and dark looks from me. How, you ask? I simply ignored the book's confusing instructions and relied on my Scottish common sense and Japanese perserverence to pull me through. And now, finally, a finished Mohawk hat! lol Its recipient is very, very happy with it. And so am I. Smiley

I used 2 skeins Lion's Brand Chunky in black instead of the recommended Lamb's Pride Bulky for the hat itself, and some Lamb's Pride Bulky for the fringe. Colours were chosen by the recipient, and I think they look wicked awesome together.


The hat itself:

OOoh, recipient... *drool*

Err, I mean, the color brings out his lovely eyes Cheesy

Would you say the Domiknitrix book is worth buying? I have yet to see it in a store and I like the name of it so I can't decided if I should order it or not.

This turned out great! I'm sorry about your car accident I can sympathize some, I was in a car crash two years ago that broke my pelvis, and I ended making up my own argyle patterned knitting project so I had something to work on.

This hat can also double as a great last-minute costume!

I used Lion's Wool Chunky for the hat itself, and Lamb's Pride Bulky for the fringe.

P.S. "Recipient" is getting an ego boost from all these compliments on his face. lol
