My sister was discussing Christmas presents and mentioned that Bubbles! wanted a hat from Adventure Time with Finn and Jake.
|Easy Peasy Living Greasy!|
The Boy decided he too needed one so we visited Loop and purchased yarn for his hat.
I modified the pattern so that it would knit up for The Boy’s head, but it still came up too big.
I cast on 90 stitches and used a size 8 needle.
Rather than begin with the ear flaps, I made the whole hat first, I also added a knit 1, purl 1 ribbing so that the hat wouldn’t curl. I picked up and knitted the ear flaps after casting off.
Despite the hat not looking EXACTLY like Finn, The Boy was happy. He wore it to school yesterday.
Unfortunately finishing the hat so quickly has caused some issues:
I’m icing my hand and wearing this horrid brace. I hope to cast on for The Teen in the next two days.
Someone asked if I had gotten into a fight. If battle with a knitting needle counts than yes, I did.
