The hat is done! I love it!
I ended up borrowing the crown chart from King Harold Hats to create a sort of Franken-hat.
Calling it that naturally set me musing about Frankenstein. Whenever people talk about that book it strikes me that they never seem to mention the most obvious moral – don’t do what Victor Frankenstein does. Like, we can all debate the price of progress and the wisdom of sciencing up a monster, but surely we can agree that if you do, don’t run off and then stand around wringing your hands while it kills people. It’s a frustrating book to read because Frankenstein is The Worst and I just want to slap him or something. Try harder! Do better!
So I guess I better be keeping an eye on my hat, just in case.
Check out the crown:
Turns out taking pictures of the top of your head is one of those surprisingly difficult things. Who knew?
Now I’m considering doing both patterns in their original forms. Meanwhile, I may have cast on another hat.
