Jolly Roger

band
This is a hat I am making for my husband it has the jolly roger on it from the pattern We call them pirates. The pattern calls for three rows of skulls but my husband only wants 1 row. I wanted the red added to it for some contrast. Because of the change my husband made it means switching from fair isle knitting to intarsia which I am struggling with I may tear that part out and do it again. I also learned a lot about floats on the back of fair isle knitting they should be a little fat or bowed (humped in other words) so they can give stretch to the hat. I may not have made mine big enough. The mannequin head is 22 inches mine is 23 inches and my husband is 24. So we will see where this hat ends up in the end hubby, me, or who knows where. This is a wool hat the kids have already been warned we better never see it go through the wash.

  1. Awesome! Makes me want to learn to knit :-) Suppose even if I knew it would take me quite some time to get good enough to do somethings like this...Great work you do!
