Kool Haat

I finished the Koolhaas Hat this weekend. I can't believe I did this in only five days. It seems that most of my recent projects have languished interminably -- it was nice to be able to knock one out fairly quickly.

I loved this pattern. It looks complicated, but is fairly simple to follow. In fact, it looks way harder to make than it is.

The pattern called for a slightly smaller yarn than I used, the result being a hat this is almost too big for my ginormous head. The ribbing comes down a little further than I would like, making me look a bit like Tony Curtis dressed as Josephine in Some Like It Hot. I'm going to have to practice pursing my lips.

Note to self: Explore possible reasons why I knit things that look like pineapples.


  1. Oh, please -- we don't get a modeled photo? ;-) I want to see the resemblance to 'Josephine'!

  2. Looks great. Love the speed of that pattern.

  3. You don't need me to say "fruitcake," do you?

    Love it! Looks great!

  4. Love the HAAT! Great job. I too would like a modeled photo.

    Thanks, Kristina
