btw. This is going to be a Prince hat for a friend of mine, a few days ago I found this cap on craft magazine and this friend of mine was screaming that he wants one – in black with a golden symbol! I don’t really use the pattern in the link above, I use a thinner yarn and of course thinner needles, I refinded the symbol chart (I found the original looked a bit . . . well unbalanced) and I’ll make a sewn shut facing (techknitter made a wonderful tutorial about this one).
In case you wonder about my snailigan – it grows, I finished the second sleeve and although I only increased a total of 6 more stitches, it fits a lot better. Now I’m about to frog (aka rip out) the first sleeve and worry about pilling and of course re-knit the first sleeve.
ooh, and don’t forget to get your copy of Betty Bat,
it’s only free for one more day
