I haven’t been paying much attention to the sweater I was knitting. It’s because of the SLEEVES! I hate knitting sleeves. While the sleeves await me I’ve been knitting a reversible hat with fire on it. I think I’ll call it the “Fire Brim” hat. Check it out:
I used Paton’s Wool DK, a superwash yarn. It took about a skein and a half of each color. I lifted the color work pattern from a newborn hat chart that’s available on Ravelry. If you want to make yourself a hat (either stranded or double knit), here’s the link to the free pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/flame-on Just remember that the pattern as it is available on Ravelry is written for a baby so, if you want an adult-sized one you’ll need to slap the flames onto an adult sized hat. If you double knit the hat you won’t need any ribbing, which is pretty cool. I made mine slouchy-style. I think next I’ll make some mittens to match since I have plenty of yarn left over.
