These are some fun hats I have been knitting up.

This is a modification of the Nautilis Hat. I started it, but I forgot to print the pattern directions so when I got to the  Row 1: *K2tog, K7(8, 9), YO* around; Row 2: K, I didn't know what to do. I improvised a couple of rows, but it didn't look very good so I just worked a K1P1 rib for a few inches. I think it sort of looks like a cupcake. I did an invisible rib bind off though which was fun.


These two are mohawk beanies. I knit the beige one in the round, then the blue one I knit flat. The Boyfriend thinks they look sort of like Trojan helmets. I am working on writing out the pattern for these.
Edit: Here they are!
Pattern for knitting in the round
Pattern for knitting the hat flat



This hat looks like intarsia, but the inside looks like a crazy spiderweb because I just used 2 balls and didn't wind up a jillion bobbins. This was a stash buster so I was just sort of winging it. On the inside I sort of tacked down the crossover strings. This hat features my first pompom, my first earflaps and my first I-Cord. I need to practice making pom poms.

Now with Pattern![/url}

Dang, yeah, I'd like that mohawk pattern when you get around to it! Awesome! Is it knit flat or in the round?

Those mohawk beanies rocks! I also love the pattern on the final hat. The blue and white diamonds really look nice together.

What kind of red yarn did you use?
You did a great job on all of them. I love the mohawks, my formerly punk friends would love them.

The mohawk beanie can be knit flat or in the round. I think it came out better knit flat, but it could just be because it was the second time I was making the hat.

Writing up a pattern after the fact is harder than it looks. I am going blind trying to count stitches. But I am working on the patterns and hope to post them in the next couple of days. Smiley

I love this pattern!  It is so awesome.  Thanks for posting the directions.  I'm making one in the round for my brother who is a redhead and often sports a mohawk when he's on school vacation.  I thought this beanie would be fitting for him.   Wink

Anyway I'm having trouble when I come to purling with the fun fur.  I purl the 10 stitches and knit around and when I come back to do the next row of the same section my thread is on the far side so I have to pull it across so I can purl with it.  So every row has a cross wise piece of orange fun fur!  Did this happen with yours?  I'm a fairly new knitter so I didn't know if I was missing something.  Thanks!

That was the problem with going in the round. What I did was put the yarn behind the work and bring it to the front between the last knit stitch and the first purl stitch. If you really want to have a clean finish you can do some fancy needle work and slip the 10 purl stitches to your right needle and then bring the fun fur to the front slip a stitch back to the left needle, fun fur to the back slip a stitch back to the left needle until you have  all 10 purl stitches back on the left needle.

 Cheesy Yeah right!  Cheesy I'm such a beginner knitter that I have no idea what you just wrote.  Wink  So far I'm putting the fun fur behind and bringing it forward to do the purling.  Might not be the prettiest but it'll be on the inside so won't be noticed. 

Thanks for the alternate directions though.  I appreciate your help.  Grin

The Mowhawk Beanies are tremendously fabulous, and the last hat is all sorts of awesome. Any way I could get my paws on a pattern for that last one?

I'm so glad people like the hats. My boyfriend is not into wearing knitted items so he is less than enthusiastic when I end up with a stockpile of items. Right now I have about 8 scarves left over from last holiday knitting season. I figure I'll send those to a clothing bank if they don't fnd their way into stocking stuffers for this year.
