A People Hat
Hey Everyone ! I've been busy as usual but am eking out a bit of knitting here and there.
I found this pattern a couple of weeks ago on Ravelry of course. It's called the Friendship Hat (Rav link) by Deann Wilson and it's a quick easy-peasy. My version is different from hers. She uses a different color for each person and has them holding hands like in a circle. I put extra space between each graph and used a striping yarn. Deann had a color wheel at the top of the hat. I changed it to big stripes. I just did my thing. I didn't want a whimsical hat. I was going for a more rugged, earthy look. I think I got it !
I have named my hat Brown People
The yarns used were Fisherman's wool in natural and Noro Kureyon in earth tones colorway #149. I used size 6 needle.
Here is Deann's original hat
Anyway, take care. I hope to talk with you a little more next post.
