It is still extremely cold in Berlin, it might well be the coldest and longest winter since I moved here. So I started to knit hats...in November...and with all the christmas crafting, preparations and the like going on, I only finished them this week.
I used the "Headigan" pattern I found on Ravelry and added my own embellishments (like sewing Liberty "Strawberry thief" on the overlapping parts).
This is the stripey version of the "Headigan" pattern. I can't recommend it enough. I used grey merino wool and "Noro Silk Garden" for the stripes.
This is my "knock-off"-hat. I saw this picture in BoligLiv magazine from a couple of years back. Until then I thought I greatly disliked any colour even remotely close to salmon, but I liked it in this photo spread were they combined it with black and grey. The model has the same colouring as me (very pale and dark hair), so I thought I'd give it a go. The hat was not available anymore, so I figured out my own pattern (cast on 100 stitches on double pointed needles - 1 row: knit 1, purl 1, knit 1, purl 1, knit 1, repeat. 2. row: knit 2, purl 1, knit 2, repeat. Third row like the first, 4th row like the second and so on...you basically alternate 1 knit stitch rib with 3 seed stitches...but don't take my word for it, you know I suck at pattern writing...).
