skull beanie #1

Master Ten loves his skull beanie...

but he doesn't love standing still while I take photos!

I think that maybe he doesn't actually KNOW how to stand still...

Never mind, I should be used to it by now!

Here's an idea of how it looks:


Love the pattern. It's available as a free Ravelry download here.

One thing I don't love is the shaping at the top. It's all boxy like this:


That's BOXY... not POXY... or maybe both!

I could see from the pattern that the decreases were going to work up like this. I haven't ever made a hat with this type of shaping before, so I figured I would give it a go as written.


Don't... like... the... shaping...

At all.

So I've made the other ones differently. Will try and get photos of them over the next few days for you

Wow, what a neat little X. It reminds me of looking for treasure! I would feel like a target walking around with that on my head :(

Aw...looks cool, and I think the shaping looks cool too. But I'm guessing it's more tricky that the usual hat shaping?

Sadly I dont' have an excuse to knit any more hats, we have a houseful already lol.
