I needed an instant gratification, after working on Émilien which is a full sized hooded man cardigan, and the second sock on tiny 2,0 mm needles and a tricky lace pattern. Not that I don't like knitting them but, you know... sometimes we want to see the results!
And my boyfriend wanted this hat the moment he saw it. I mean, YAY! He wants me to knit him something! So, of course it was on my knitting list, and almost on the top. Plus, bulky yarn (perfectly good Nashua yarn) + hat pattern = super quick knit! It took me only 2 days, including the octopus appliqué. Merveilleux!
This pattern comes from a Berocco booklet, and the designer, Cirilia Rose, is a young and stylish and hip designer who works for them. And, for me, she is kind of a inspiration, or a role model. She looks about my age and she knits for a living. How much more could I dream of? Hum, let me think. Nothing. Oh, and I LOVE her designs. I already knitted Faverolle (which was a huge success on my blog and on Ravelry), and her Aidez (comes from Aidez-moi, which in french means Hekp me!) is in my queue!
But, back to the hat, it's gorgeous, it's my boyfriend's and I plan on stealing it. Regularly.
Again, stay tuned guys for the upcoming What's Hot on Ravelry post. I know I keep you waiting, but it will be even tastier that way! Have a nice week-end!
