FO: Insulate! Hat for Mr. J

February 11, 2014

Insulate!!Mr. J has a lovely big hat with fake fur and ear flaps for when it is super, super cold, but his old hat he was wearing when it was only semi-cold was very funny looking and old.  I finally made him a replacement, this wonderful Insulate! Dalek pattern.  We are big Dr. Who fans, so this went over well, Fia grabs the “Dalek” hat and wears it around sometimes.  This was leftover Cascade 128 from the Viking hat I made for Hallowe’en, a very soft choice for hats.  And like the designer says in her pattern notes, at first glance this just looks like a nice geometric pattern.  I remembered how I taught myself to knit stranded like this with one hand, which made this a fast knit.  I’m itching for some more colour work now.
