Hat Attack 2008 Hat


is done. The pattern's been out less than 24 hours, so I wonder if the hat was difficult enough; there are a number of people (I guesstimate more than 10%) of the participants who are already done.


About the pattern-eh. My project looks like it's supposed to but there's a few bits of weirdness going on in the pattern. I know it's not easy to write one, but if things gave ME pause, I know they really goofed up jeep knitters.
The pattern is based on binary code sequence (01100 and such). I wish it were more balanced. Yarn is Soft Angora, 80%merino, 20% angora, about 130 yards (1.25 balls), color raspberry

Looks so pretty, Bets! It would go nicely with an Irish Hiking Scarf. Even with a flooky pattern, you did a beautiful job. ;-}

It looks really good Bets. Sorry the pattern is weird. But no so weird that you couldn't ace it..You go Girl!

That looks so pretty Bets. Is that the Angora Soft from DBNY? It looks much prettier in your hat that on their site. Did you like working with it? Daryl

Damn you're fast at cranking out a hat. Interesting pattern, nice color (what yarn?). Ok, stupid question here... uh, what is Hat Attack?

I thought the cable sequence looked odd (or at least unusual). Glad you explained it. Despite that, the hat looks lovely.
