Blog, I knit another hat - why? Because it’s August!!
I knit this while listening to one of the two knitting podcasts I subscribe to. Most people listen to only zero knitting podcasts, whereas I am marooned on the tail end of a bell curve, and with TWO knitting podcasts. I’ve been tending toward talk radio more; a habit which I attribute to being prematurely welcomed into my mid-40s. KNITTING AND TALK RADIO IS A NICE WAY TO SPEND A SATURDAY.
So this hat is really cute and different from most hats. I did the crochet part before the part about the brim inside out so it really stands out from the seed stitch pattern, like horizontal ribbing almost. I repeated the brim a bunch of times, but I think if I had to do it over I would have also made it wider. I steamed the shit out of the brim, you should have seen me all with the iron. I also added this button detail. Why not, right?
Yeah this pose, cliche cliche, but it shows off the seed stitch pattern and that’s what we’re here for.
I can wear it to the side.
But I think I like wearing it backwards.
