A Faroese Hat
While the Komi sweater is slowly growing back to where it was before I ripped, I thought I would show you a side project I've been working on:
It's going to be a double-knit hat. The two-color patterns are from a book of Faroese patterns. I'm planning to make it long enough that I can fold up the brim. That way both sides will be visible, and the hat will be twice as warm over my ears. I have a feeling that next winter when I'm remembering what -50 degrees F feels like, I'll be glad for all the warmth I can get!
I started this hat the first time I was frustrated with the Komi sweater. The border pattern was lots of fun, but then I got to the relatively plain (boring) body of the hat. Hopefully I can stay interested for long enough to finish the project.
