Pink lady knits

7.16.2007

Got to be GRYFFINDOR!!!

Pattern: Variation of the House Hat pattern from Charmed Knits
Yarn:
Patons Classic Merino in burgandy and gold

Size:
Child's size large (I have a teeny head)

Needles:
Addi #6 DPN's

This hat was modified quite a bit, but I hope it will still count towards the Charmed Knits KAL. I did a hem edge, mainly because I was interested in learning the technique and partly because I knew I wanted it to look less like a winter hat and more like a wizard hat.

I spaced out the decreases to make the top more pointy, though it can be work folded down as well. I was thinking of adding a pom pom, but a tassle seemed more wizardly. I hope that this hat finds a happy home with Warm Woolies.

I just ordered myself a copy. I can't wait to get it, especially after seeing your hat.

I love your variations! Is there anyway that you could tell me some specifics of how you did the decreases? I am not savvy enough to figure out pattern changes yet, but I sure can follow a pattern! Thanks for any help/info.
