I am WAY behind in posting FOs. So look for several over the next week or so!

Koolhaas back FO

I LOVE this hat! It is cute, but Tattoo Boyfriend could pull it off in a little more manly color!

Koolhaas butterfly FO

Butterfly says, “There is a face on the other side of this head!”

My head isn’t lopsided – I swear. Neither is the hat…but it sure looks like it here!!!

Project Details:

Pattern: Koolhaas – Interweave Knits Holiday 2007 Issue

Yarn: Cascade 220 The Heathers – Amethyst Heather (yes, I used the left overs from my Duster and I still have some left)

Needles: US Size 6 Denise and US Size 8 Knitpicks Options Nickle plated (I did not use the dpns instead I magic looped the decrease portion).

Size: Womens (if I had to do it again I would shorten the ribbing just a bit to better bit my head)

Notes: This was an easy, fast knit once I relearned how to read. Seriously. I don’t mean I didn’t read the chart correctly – that was fine. Well, then there is the whole read the key. Yeah. I didn’t do that apparently and got a couple rows in- realized I was stupid – and ripped back and started over. Twice.

Mods: Well, it really isn’t a mod, but I didn’t use a cable needle, I cabled without one which made it faster, I think. This is why I used the Options needles – they are pointy enough to make this easy!

But it is a Zombie Face, “grrrr….argh!”

I thought that hat looked great on you! I still can’t get over how fast you did it!

whatever do you mean neither your head or the hat isn’t loopsided? It’s got to be one or the other! ;) Love, love, love the hat. The color is perfect on you!

I love the hat! It’s in my list of things to knit, but in manly colors for my husband.

I saw this hat online and decided to give it a go, although I didn’t have a pattern. I love it and there will be many more coming off the needles by me. It’s a joy to knit!
