Thorpe revisited

The first time I made this hat (thorpe pattern on sidebar here) I didn't do that great of a job. I was afraid of dpn's so I made it using the magic loop method which created two pretty big seams on each side. This time I am a dpn machine which means no more crappy knitting. This hat is my nephew Colin's (mom, one L or two???) Christmas present...I still need to add the tassels on the sides.

9 people are laughing with me:

I would almost learn to knit if I could make that hat. It is sooooo cute!

The Wades said...

I'm tired of revisiting Thorpe.

Hey, have you ever thought about making these to sell? Bright colorful ones make photographers REALLY happy :)

That hat (and the baby) is adorable. A friend of Michelle Wade refereed me to your blog. I too love to knit and am not afraid of DPNs!
