Psychedelic Earflaps November 11, 2007Posted by merp in FOs, Knitting, Pisco!.
Pattern: Baby Earflap Hat (from Hey Julie)
Yarn: 1 skein of acrylic from Target
Time to finish: about 3 evenings (plus ends woven and ties braided this last[?] Sunday)
Gift for someone’s first birthday, a little generous on the sizing. And her parents aren’t exactly Deadheads. But mom loved it, and says it will go with baby’s winter coat.
Sorry to disappoint with nothing but a butternut squash to stand in for the baby this time, but the session with the live model did not go well.
Sometimes I think the animals don’t like me very much.
A Postscript, from December 2009: For some reason I get an awful lot of hits on this post, so as a tip for all of you looking for a cute earflap hat pattern, Cyn’s Brainmonster solves the curling earflap problem quite well. Plus, scary teeth!!
