oh, she says 'hair'ajuku, kind of adding a vowel sound. it's not that big of deal in english, but japanese vowels are only pronounced one way, thus the 'ha' and the 'ra' rhyme.  it's easy to change words in japanese by messing the vowels up...  i suppose it is just like 'typhoon' and other borrowed words and is probably rapidly becoming accepted english (if it isn't already?)   japanese surely has enough changed pronounciations of english words (and other languages), just don't ask to go to 'hairajuku' if you visit japan! Smiley  i've often thought it would be much easier if we changed to calling countries and cities what the people who live there call them, but maybe this is a case in point that it can't be done...

anyway, back to the lovely hat...

Oh. I always just said "HAR-A-zhoo-koo". It could just be that American accent, coz all Aussie friends of mine say it properly too.
But I know what you mean, I never understood why we call Brazil Brazil, when they call it Brasil. Not much difference, but still. We call Germany Germany, but the Germans call it Deutschland (I don't know how to spell it, been too long since I had a German lesson), while the French call it something like, Allermagne or something? Tis all very stupid.
(I still love that hat!! Do we know if it's in this magazine or anything yet?)

Flapperjakk--
I absolutely looove this hat.

I don't suppose you would be inclined (seeing as you are publishing this pattern) to tell about the decreases you used to make the top so perfect?  I have designed a few hats on my own and they ALWAYS turn out pointy on top.  Yours looks just right.

Enlighten us!  Thanks a bunch.

Maybe I missed a post, but I didn't catch which magazine the pattern for this will be published in. I'd love to knit my own once the pattern comes out!

I am in awe of Flapperjakk's creative knitting skills, and since I possess neither those skills nor a circular needle, I tried to knock up a crochet version:


It's not as good as the original, but I was working with different yarn and a different technique, so it's as good as can be expected. I'm leaving it up to Flapperjakk whether I should post the pattern or not.

Her dirty paws and furry coat,
She ran down the forest slope.
The forest of talking trees,
They used to sing about the birds and the bees.
The bees had declared a war,
The sky wasn't big enough for them all.
