1  Re: One hour hat! in Knitting: Completed Projects by spuggie on: November 22, 2005 07:30:11 PM
Hey, much thanks to woolgathered for her cool pattern! Smiley
I used it to make my new hat - though I have to say, the slightly dodgy results were my fault and not the patterns at all!

I put some 2x1 ribbing round the bottom edge, not that you can really tell with the chunky yarn, and I knitted the whole thing on my Denise circulars, kinda making it up as I went along when I got to the decreases and moving the stitches around so I could do a kind of Magic Loop type thing.

I do like it, I love the colours, but unfortunately my stubborness with the colours meant that I ended up with two different weights of yarn so it goes a bit bumpy in the red (chunkier) stripes :s Plus it turned out a bit big, so it makes my head look huge and the bumps really show round the back, but on the good side it also goes right down over my ears and down to my neck, which is good cos its *freezing* here at the moment! Even so, anyone got any ideas how I could maybe shrink it a bit as I can't be bothered ripping it out and starting again, even though it was really easy and quick! Again, colour stubbornness dictated that the red is half wool, half acrylic (sirdar bigga) and the green is r2 fuzzy felt (which is gorgeous) 68% Nylon 16% Merino Wool 20% Acrylic 6% Alpaca, so I'm not entirely sure what would happen if I tried to block/felt/wash/boil it.

Any tips appreciated!

hey, thanks for all the replies and good ideas! i think i'll probably go with the patch idea as i have some kickass baby justice league fabric that i'm going to make a bag out of, so they would go well together :) i don't know much about felting but i guessed since its acrylic it wouldnt work?

i made a couple of green lantern charts if anyone is interested, i think i'll go with the classic GL logo but there's some kyle rayner ones there too (my friend's a green lantern freak, he will want one of every costume!) and my bat logo is there too, with the added stitches in for next time when i do it better!

i love birds of prey too! oracle kinda has her own logo but its not half as cool as when she used to be batgirl. if you wanted something subtle i guess you could make up a kind of logo with pictures for huntress, canary and oracle next to each other, kinda like the powerpuff girls! maybe an ancient greek oracle type symbol or that digital head in green for oracle, a little yellow bird for canary and that cross that huntress always wears in purple? for catwoman i would do something with the eyes and maybe the ears as they're her kinda motif, just simple shapes like her character designs on gothamgirls.com. can you tell i'm trying to avoid thinking about the essay i'm supposed to be writing?! ;)

luv,blessings&goldielookinchain, rach =)
