I came across what I thought was the cutest hat pattern a couple of weeks ago. It was a pattern for a Wonder Woman hat! I am pretty much of the mind that everyone needs a Wonder Woman hat, so I decided to make one.
This was a great fun pattern. It would be a good pattern for someone new to colorwork. I was excited because I was able to go to my yarn stash for all the colors I needed. It’s kind of a mish mash of yarns as a result, but I very much like the result.
The red is some leftover Lion yarn. The white is some baby dk. The blue is Cascade 220 Superwash, and the gold is some alpaca that I got back in Arkansas at Knit Unto Others!
I should probably have included pictures of me wearing the hat, but I couldn’t get a picture that I liked very much (no offense to my photography assistants), so I convinced my little Wonder Kid to pose.
He got goofy with me, but he let me take a few nice pictures.
The pattern is for a beanie, but I made it longer. I wanted good coverage in the winter cold.
I also had never done a cast on with two different colors. This was just a long-tail basically, but I held one color in one hand, and the second in the other. The result was the red edging. I liked that effect, and it was really easy to do! I also used worsted weight, so I followed the instructions of another knitter (they are copied onto my ravelry project page). Basically I cast on 100 stitches and began my decreases at 7 inches instead of 5.
It’s such a fun hat!
