Finished early this week!!

I finished the Koolhaas Hat from the IK Holiday issue last night. I took me about 3 nights.

Koolhaas Hat

Pattern: Koolhaas Hat by Jared Flood

Yarn: Bernat Super Value (yes acrylic sorry Jared!) it is the free skein given to me by my knitting guild for our Christmas Party Contest..

Needles: Size from my Boye Needlemaster

Notes: Once you get the pattern established you really don’t have to look at the pattern till the crown shaping. Since this pattern uses twisted knit stitch, and purl stitch it is acually a great candidate for loom knitters with adjustable looms!

I am planning on making some matching armwarmer/mittens we shall see how they turn out!

And since it is Bookish Thursday another new book to tell you about. This on is for the needle knitters.. mainly of the male persuasion! (seems to be a theme today) Son of Stitch ‘n Bitch: 45 Projects to Knit and Crochet for Men.

Son of a Stitch n’ Bitch

It’s cool because Chelsea who’s blog I have been following for a long time has a pattern in there, and it made it to the back cover!! Congrats!!!

  1. That’s a beautiful hat! I was looking at that book at the bookstore last week. I only crochet, and so was disappointed to see that the book only has 4 or so crochet patterns. It seems like everytime a book says it has both knit and crochet patterns, it almost always has 95% knit patterns. Waahhh!

  2. Looks good! I picked up the mag too and this is one of my favorite patterns in this issue. But it’s having to sit in the queue waiting it’s turn. 😉

  3. Nice take on the hat, Denise. Since the pattern originally calls for budget busting yarn, I was put off a little. You’ve done Jared right by making this accessible to those of use who are still trying to burn through our acrylic stashes 🙂
