Which is exactly why I hate this pattern, having to count every stitch on every row. I do however, love the results. At the end you have a fantastic driving cap made all in one piece with just a little seaming at the end, ingenious construction truly. I just wish there wasn't quite so much counting needed for the end result.
|Lil' Miss modelling the hat for me, I fear it may be too small for Chef|
I just finished making a second one of these hats for my dear friend The Chef as a Chanukah present. The one I made last year out of a wool/acrylic blend was so well received I decided to make a second out of a cotton/linen blend for summertime wear for him. I'm sure he will love this one too and it will undoubtedly look great on him, but, all things considered I think it will be a few years before I even consider making another, I just hate the counting that much.
Then I tried it on and looked in the mirror...dang it looks cute! I may suck it up and make one for myself since I am sure something in my stash would work. But all that counting, as cute as it is I'm not sure I am ready to go through that again anytime soon.
