So I don't know if we are supposed to use a current project or if we can use one from our stash, but I had to share this one. This hat is a testament to my new rule, "Do not design something when you are drunk/stoned". This rule goes hand in hand with the rule that states, "Do not continue a project that you have invested more than an hour into while drunk/stoned". These were very important rules in my house before we had a baby. Now the rule is, "Don't leave your knitting on the floor or on anything that is not more than a foot off the ground."

Anyways, my husband designed this (wouldn't it be cool if there was a hat that instead of having two flaps, just had one). I crocheted the top and added the bottom with my husband egging me on. When it was done and I presented it to him his responses were, "I don't really wear hats" and "It seemed like a better idea at the time".

Sorry for the long story. Without further ado, I present to you the uniflap:

Gah!!! Where did all that lint come from? Like I said this came from my stash since no one has been brave/stupid enough to wear it. *Pretends her house isn't covered in cat hair*

And this one should show the key element of the hat a bit better.

Maybe no points for craftsmanship, but it is original, right?

Haha. You can get babies to wear anything. Please disregard our messy house. Smiley

Edited to add action shot.

Thanks for looking.

LoL!  Great story!
Your home sounds just like mine, minus the baby part.

I think the hat is a-ok.  Hard to imagine how it's "supposed to go" without an action-show, but I guess that's the problem if no-one will wear it!

Wait, I'll wear it!  Or wait til your hubby is drunk/stoned & maybe he'll find it more enticing ;-)

Personally, I find that starting small projects is fun when I'm under the influence.  Just nothing too tangly, that's all!

The starting of new projects is fine. But sometimes I want to continue on the project I have put a week into while I am stoned. This only ends in tears.

Lol, I'll try to get an action shot. Maybe the baby will wear it. Another problem is the tightness, but I bet DS could rock it. He looks great in anything. I like knitting him stuff because he wears it and looks nice. It makes me proud to thing I kept his bald head warm.

I am trying to figure out what to do with it. Thus the fact that it has been in my stash for sometime now.

Thanks for replying. I was beginning to think no one would. Smiley Then again, who can blame tem, the uniflap takes ones breath away.

I just thought of a use for it. When you don't want someone to notice your new pimple or something else embarressing, simply put on the hat. No one will be looking at your face. lol
