Searching through Ravelry one morning, I was instantly smitten by Cat Bordhi’s Anemone. I love the elegant twist of the moebius brim and all those fabulous tendrils springing out from my head like a million brilliant ideas.



I love the rainbow slub of this chunky yarn from Micheal’s. I kept the sleeve while I was knitting and threw it away without a single thought about blog posting. I do remember that the colorway was “Tempo” and it’s a wool/ploy blend (I think 50/50). However, it’s much thicker than the recommended worsted weight, but for some reason I didn’t think that would be a problem.


Two guage swatches later, I realized that even the tiniest needles weren’t going to make this yarn worsted weight, and so using US#5 needles I just made the “baby” size. I wound up doing just one series of the tendrils (in each spot in the row) before beginning my increases. It fits perfectly!


My tendrils seem to curl a little bit, which I think is cute and due to either the uneven thickness of the yarn or unevenness of my twisting. With this yarn at least, I didn’t notice any difference after washing.

I love this hat and wear it whenever its chilly at night in LA. I tend to get a lot of stares when I wear this hat out, which can be disorienting, because they seem to be of the “what the fuck is that hat?” nature. Whatevs.

That is a seriously cool hat. I love the mix of colours.

I'd probably stare if I saw someone wearing a hat like that but only because I'd be wondering where it came from & if I could get one. Wink

That hat definitly screams.  It's a good scream though.  Like a "OMG OMG OMG SO MUCH FUN" kind of scream. Aren't Cat Bordhi patterns a blast?

It was my first time using one of her designs, and it was definitely awesome!
