Seriously Ugly Hat LOL


I wanted to learn stranding to work with more than color and be able to do some more interesting designs and patterns. I made this very ugly hat as a practice piece just to learn the technique.

Hmmm...years ago I worked at a clothing store and we had a few items that apparently crossed the border from "ugly" to "so ugly it's cool". Perhaps?

If not, well, no matter what it looks like it could keep someone warm and there's about a billion charities out there looking for donations!

It may something about me...but I don't think it is ugly at all. In fact, I think it looks great.

is this done with the fair-isle method?

Knitting Guy said...

Not technically Fair Isle, but is stranding.

I dont think its ugly at all! I would be interested to see it on to see how it fits - but I think the pattern isn't horrible! I've seen alot worse out there!

It ain't ugly! Its pretty cool actually and I'm impressed at your progress with knitting Mason. I've not tried colour work / stranded work yet. I've got a pattern for Marvellous Mitts to try that with after I finish my Halcyon =D

Thanks, I'm enjoying the colorwork.
