Hilde Hat Prototypes


Sunday Breakfast

Clearly, I have a lot to learn about pattern writing. For one, it helps to write it down as I go along and second, when testing the pattern, to follow it exactly and not deviate. Although, now I am left with two different yet pleasing hats, one of which will go to my Grandmother!
I can't wait to give it to her!


Hilde Prototype A (FO) & Prototype B (WIP)


Hilde Prototype B (FO)

I charted the first prototype (gray), using the Knit Visualizer Demo... which works great, except it won't let me save, print, or do anything with my work. While I'd love to splurge on a $200 knitting program, my budget simply won't allow it. *le sigh* So, it was screen grab and Photoshop to the rescue!

Yesterday, I picked up 2 more skeins Cascade Heathers from B.E. Yarns ; One blue, the other olive green... and some pretty red buttons!

I'm going to use the green yarn to knit another hat and follow the pattern religiously, fixing any mistakes and kinks.


Yummy.
With the other skein, that's TBD. I just loved the color combination between the blue yarn and the bright red buttons.

Testing out the goods.
