A rare occurrence...I'll bet you never thought you'd see a picture of me on my blog! I need to get one of those adult head models because there was just no one else here to model my latest charted hat. Besides rarely having my picture taken, it's rare that the camera is in someone else's hands...and really it wasn't; I hooked up the remote adapter I made for my digital a few years ago and snapped away. Because I have blue eyes and always get red-eye I try never to look at the camera. This is the best I could come up with and I might even change it when I get time. I look at my own picture and sometimes don't recognize myself, I've lost 70 pounds and it takes a bit of getting use to.
This hat was done in four colours; teal for the brim, burgundy, blue, and white for the rest. I used the green Knifty Knitter. Located below you will find the chart (click on it for a bigger view). The brim was done with one strand Red Heart Shetland Chunky, e-wrapped for 15 rows, pull up and knit over. The burgundy is Lion Brand Thick & Quick (I think because the labels are gone) as is the White. The blue is Red Heart Shetland Chunky. All was done using one strand e-wrapped. I knit for 21 rows and then did one last row in blue, 22 rows total. To remove use the gathering method. Because you are only using one strand I find this hat a lot looser than the previous hats I've done, good for an adult fit.
