#Louder!!!

I just finished knitting a great pattern written by my friend Ann.  It’s a hat called #Louder, and it’s a Seahawks hat (this probably goes without saying).  The back design represents the seismograph from the “Beastquake” which results from the fan phenomenon known as “Beastmode”.  I am really not all up and comfortable with the Seahawks terminology, but I have a lot of friends around these parts who definitely are.

As Ann wrote in her pattern, the Beast Quake occurs when the fans are:

There’s a hashtag in front of the Louder too.  I had trouble getting photos which showed everything just right.  My hashtag is a little wonky too.FullSizeRender (1)

I’d love to make another one of these hats. I loved the yarn too.  It’s HiKoo by skacel, and I’d not knit with it before.  Really nice to knit with.  I did block it on my little mannequin head thing. It smoothed out my decreasing at the top a whole lot. It is a roomy hat, and I wonder if I might not go down a needle size if I did it again.  It’s a nice fitting and keep your head warm hat though.  Here’s my little spaghetti-sauced faced Davey modeling it for me (I was doing good to get him to cheerfully pose for me; I didn’t want to push my luck by requiring a clean face as well!).  This is a great pattern for which to practice stranded knitting.  It’s clearly written and very fun!
