Hey--
Here's my take on the Fornication Hat.  At first glance it's just your standard winter deer hat.. but look again!  Shocked
I made it for my boyfriend over the winter holiday season.  He wanted something... unusual.  Wink  Here it is being modeled by my boyfriend.  He's very pleased with it!  He enjoys wearing it to class to mess with fellow students and professors.

I used parts of two skeins of Berroco Ultra Alpaca, one black and one white.  It turned out *slightly* tight, but not unwearable.  My gauge for the final item came out a bit tighter than my swatch.  This was my first two color knit and it didn't occur to me at the time that working two strands would make it smaller.  So obvious now!  Roll Eyes

If you're interested in the chart (no, it's not of my creation), it can be found here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fornicating-deer-chart











Enjoy.  Smiley

Oh my, this is terrible. Terribly Good that is! I can't knit but will bookmark this for the distant day that I learn how. What boyfriend wouldn't love one of these, eh? Wonderful work.

LOL!  Love the matching mischievous look in 2nd photo.  Things like this make me wish I knit!

WOW! I love this idea! I detest holiday sweaters and hats and things, but I adore sarcasm, so this one is pretty much an epic win in my book. Well done! Also, the details on the pine-tree as well as the deer is amazing. Did you make the chart yourself?

Ha ha, thanks for the comments.  Smiley

stitchencupboards: No, I didn't make the chart.  It is free and you can find it here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fornicating-deer-chart
I am not sure if they have the *hat* chart there too, with the pine trees, but I know one of the projects will if they don't.  Smiley  (People have used this chart for all sorts of things from socks to mittens, and, of course, hats.)

Ha ha, yeah this is an awesome chart.  I'm thinking that I will try to make some socks or leg warmers (because I really can't stand knitting socks!) for myself using a variation of this chart next winter.

striker923: Thanks!  It's my boyfriend's backyard.  He and his Dad designed and "crafted" it, if that's the correct term.  There's even a little pond with a waterfall and TONS of frogs in it behind him in the second photos (I think he's blocking it from view though!).  I'll tell them their yard got a compliment!  Smiley
