I know I’ve been moaning about this hat ever since I started it… The pattern is too simple, the yarn is rough on my fingers, yada yada yada… But now that all the dashes are done, I am taken aback by how rich it turned out.

Probably the richest thing I’ve ever made, actually. Look at all those curves, they seem endless, going into themselves and back out.

And the little stitches, well defined even underneath the hairy aura.

I’m impressed. ‘Rich’ is exactly what I had in mind when I started planning this hat for a very special friend. Then I was disenchanted both by the yarn and the pattern, but I’m glad I pushed on. In the end, my original research had been right and the combination of pattern and yarn produced the effect I was after. Yay!

I can’t wait to weave in the ends, block this baby and put it in the post. I am positive that it will be loved! :)

About fridica

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.
