The other day I got a hot burning hair up my a*s to make a quick gift. I’ve liked the Koolhaas Hat pattern and had two skeins of Karabella Aurora 8 (LOVE it) in a chocolate brown in the stash. I swatched with my morning coffee and a hat was born. Granted, I had to go to work (after 20 days off – yikes) and took the project with me and got about 7 rows done in 4 days because I was on the TRIP FROM HELL. (Oh holidays, how you suck.)
No worries, the trip ended and the hat is done today. The hat is lovely and I don’t want to give it away, but you already knew I was a bad ‘un. No mods to Jared’s pattern, not really – just different yarn, gauge and needle size. My row gauge was off so I converted all “repeat chart 5x” to lengths based upon the pattern’s gauge. Therefore, I knit until the hat was 6.625″ long and then decreased. It fits my human head, so I think the math worked out ok.
Tomorrow is baking day so all pictures will be of cake/pie. They will be bad pictures as my trusty, faithful orange tiny camera has died. I’m sad because orange camera has been all over the world with me, but we had a good run. RIP orange friend.
