The boyfriend is a super nerd, and dragged me out to go see Watchmen 3
times this weekend.
Three- and I've read the graphic novel.
So, on the third showing I brought along some knitting, just to occupy my hands.
Before it was finished I'd pumped out this:
I've been working on making an openwork hat for the summer, since my current one is hot as hell.
Just thought I'd include the pattern for anyone else who is looking for a nice openwork hat.
It's really, really simple, so more advanced knitters, please don't scoff. I know my "mad skillz" are a little sup-par on this one.
One Quick Note:
I like my hats to have a little "give" or slouch. I'm not really into hats that squash mah hair, so this hat has a little room built in. If you prefer more slouch just make the "body" of the hat longer before you start making the decreases, but keep in mind that the decreases add some length too.
You don't want to end up with some ginormous Dr. Seuss creation.
