koolhaas hat

This pattern should be called kickhass hat. Number one, it is a totally kick ass pattern. That Jared sure knows what he's doing. Me? Not so much. I seem to be more proficient at UN-knitting this pattern. I need to just relax and trust the pattern. When it says 'knit the next two stitches through the back loops' but doesn't say 'knit them together' then maybe, just maybe I should follow the pattern and not decrease the stitches by half the first decrease round. Maybe it's just me. OK, so it's totally me. I swear, I've unknit the first decrease round about 17 times. But seriously, this is a fantastic knit. The cabling pattern is so distinct it's super easy to find your mistakes. Lucky me! When I did get stuck I emailed Jared and he politely walked me through. How's THAT for customer service?!

I know I've been saying this for the last three days but really, today I will finish this hat!

I got super behind in my blogging. I can't (un)knit AND blog! So, for those interested, I posted some of my Santa collection in my google album. Click the Santa below to visit.

Hope your holidays were merry and bright.

ETA: Koolhaas hat DONE! This is by far, the coolest thing I've ever knit. It's not perfect but it is done and it's still lovely.

Love that hat. Now I need to get busy with mine. Your Santa show is beautiful but kind of sad. It makes me realize how long it has been since we had Christmas together. I love you and yours

That is amazing Melly! I am absolutely determined to really truly LEARN to knit...more than a scarf!
