I was planning to make this hat out of Lincraft Prism yarn (which I'm pretty sure is the same as Patons SWS) but impulse-bought some Lincraft Surprise yarn instead.  It's so lovely and bright - perfect for winters, which are characterised by black and charcoal coats, especially in places full of public servants.



It's kind of an amalgam of two patterns I found.  Now I've just got to make a scarf to go with it!

Comments or criticisms welcome.

Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

Wow, the entrelac looks awesome. I've used this yarn to make a long scarf. I love watching it turn into different colours! *yarn geek*

Oh man is that ever a sexy hat!  I just love entrelac, I'm going to give it a shot right after my current wip is done.  I  agree that this will look like a cheery little flower in the concrete jungle full of grayscale business types.

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

Sorry for the delay, and not referencing the patterns.

Crocodisle, that was one of the patterns I used.  Here is the other one: http://rms-ravelingmysensibility.blogspot.com/2008/11/entre-nous-entrelac.html

It's not really that hard.  It's looks complicated but the hardest bit is probably picking up the stitches - if you can do that it's a piece of cake.

I'm currently making a scarf to match with a non-entrelac pattern and I agree it's fun watching the colurs change!  I think it makes me knit quicker because I can't wait to see what will turn up next.

This looks really great. I have a love/hate relationship with entrelac (while its a WIP, not when its finished) and yours turned out really cool with those colors and all. I'd be so proud of that hat.

I love the bright colors - it makes my mouth water for candy. XD

And I'm impressed by your ability to do entrelac, since it has always looked very intimidating to me!
