New Hat!!

When I saw this hat, I gasped. I HAD TO MAKE IT!!!!
I ran out THAT day to buy the noro, which and since become my new favorite yarn. At first I was skeptical, because whilst casting on, the yarn fell apart. I had to start casting on 96 stitches AGAIN!!! After that, I decided I loved it again, even after I found this weird, black chunk of who knows what tangled up with the yarn.

The pattern was pretty straightforward and easy to do once I got into the rhythm. My camera is being fixed, so all i have to go by is the cell phone picture. The top is kind of pointy, but I'm thinking about adding a pom pom to mask it.

I went out and bought a new ball today to design my own. I LOVE THIS YARN!

ahh, the Fake Isle is one cool pattern. I kinda dig the pointy top without the pompom.

click on "this hat" in the first line. It's the link to the pattern.

The point on top is growing on me. I'm currently designing my own version of this hat. I'll post the pattern when I'm finished.

Man, I love those hats. I've made 2 already, but yours makes me want to make another. Too bad I don't have any Noro.
