tasseled fez, sans tassels
Using leftovers from Jerry’s Wallasaurus, I made this hat:
Well, that is more a picture of my handsome boy….here’s a better picture of the hat:
Pattern: Tasseled Fez from Hats On! by Charlene Schurch.
Yarn: Cascade 220
Needles: US 4, 16″ circular, bamboo
Start: March 3, 2007
Finish: March 6, 2007
I like it. It was more challenging than other colorwork projects that I’ve attempted because the chart was wider. It took me about one and a half full repeats of the chart to get into the flow. Then I finally got it – you know, intuitively – and it much went faster.
Here’s the top:
There was no shaping involved, which was pretty sweet. You just knit a tube, then sew the top together all fancy-like and then you have a three pointed hat!
With the exception of the tassels, I did not make any modifications to the pattern. It is very well written – simple and straightforward. In fact, the whole book is full of totally awesome patterns and I can’t wait to try another!
