This hat will be part of a space girl outfit. I'm working on the bikini now. I'm also planning on making a matching beaded holster for my zap-zap ray gun.

There are like 1100 acrylic pony beads!


It's the first non-scarf knitting project I've finished. It's actually the reason I started knitting. I kind of love it. What do you think?

you should more than kind of love it! its absofuckingly beautiful and i bet it feels even better to wear. Did you use a pattern or edit one or just make it up? anyhow.. it rocks, and the color possibilties using the pony beads could be extreme... just imagine.
good job.word.

What do I think?

I love it, and I want one too. Did you use a particular pattern, or did you make it up from scratch? Also - isn't it hard to knit with 1100 beads on a bit of yarn?

Damn, you must be patient. Or just very determined or easily amused.

I'm impressed. Where'd you get the pattern for it? (Sans beads is fine)

Did you slip the beads between stitches or knit them in them?

I'm inspired now.

Aww thanks, peoples! It's a pattern from the Fall 2007 issue of knit !.
I think I was very determined to have such a hat- I started, messed up and started over at least 6 times at the begining. But once i got the hang of it- it was pretty fast.
Also you just string 250 beads at a time, use them up, cut your yarn and string some more.
Now I'm actually thinking of doing one with faux pearls, I think it might look flapper-ish.

YES!!!!!!!  I bought this issue of Knit.1 especially for this pattern and I was DYING to make it, but then this pesky thesis got in the way. Damn graduate school! This has GOT to be a summer projects of mine.

I wonder how it would look in irridescent beads? Those black gassy looking ones? Faux pearls would be awesome if the hole is big enough. I'd love to see that! A pattern would be cool too.

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.
