I’m currently working on Tonya Wagner’s Isotope Hat from Knotions. The other day I received some less than encouraging comments from someone whose opinion I (usually) hold dear. “It looks like a brain”, he said. Really?? Now before I proceed, the fact that my hat is purported to look like the inside of a noggin has nothing whatsoever to do with the pattern or designer. The hat pictured in Tonya’s pattern is lovely, which is why I decided to knit it. This spectacle is all my doing, I guess.
Here are the specifics:
Yarn: The Fibre Company Khroma WW, 50% alpaca, 50% merino
Colorway: Bougainvillea (redish-purple)
Gauge: 18 sts = 4 inches (approx) on size 8 US needles
Since I only have 2 skeins of this lovely yarn, and I know I’m going to run out before I finish, I thought I’d rip back to only 4 cable repeats instead of 5. This may help it look less, ummm, well, brain-ish.
So, Leute, what do you think? Does it look like a brain? Yes, no? I need advice! Help!
