It's that magic time of year again. Along with football season, my holiday knitting is in full swing and keeps me busy on Sunday afternoons. It is also the time of year that boyfriend begins to imagine his new winter hat and starts offering to design the charts if I'll do the knitting. Last time we ended up with the Marching Bears Hat, a fun but demanding chart without any repeats.
This year I agreed to knit another 'boyfriend original' with a few conditions: floats no longer than 5 stitches, and repeats no longer than 20 stitches. His conditions were pretty simple: it has to fit just right and it has to be a solid and a self striper.
After my halloween rally hat, the solid had to be Fresco. The striper is Silk Garden Sock and both yarns are in colors that are just right. His chart is remarkably easy to follow and (almost) sticks to my conditions.
It makes me excited to see what next year's boyfriend hat will be...
