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:
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!
