i finished this hat saturday but i haven't had the opportunity to get it modeled in day light. i have to mail it out today so i dragged jg into the bathroom last night for this lousy shot.
it's the standard beanie with some 2x2 ribbing at the brim. i'm okay with the way it turned out, but it could be better. if i was to make another, i'd bring the face down from the crown so it can be seen without having to tilt the head. that means i'd have to lower the legs, too.
the green is actually really bright. it's brown sheep lamb's pride worsted weight yarn in a lovely green shade called kiwi. the pictures don't show it very well.
isn't it gimmicky? it's an insult actually. i made it for fred, the one who gave me grief for doing funny yoga. he claims to be french. his birthday was this past sunday.
i'm hoping that someone else has knitted a similar animal beanie. cats, dogs, spiders. the possibilities are endless. if you've made or seen some, please share with me.
