Get ahead, get a hat! Just… maybe not this one.

Warning, still using emergency, very crap camera!

I finished
Karl's Hat Mk II
Karl’s Hat Mk II

on Thursday, after buying a new set of DPNs to do the decreases.

it came out rather well I thought, but as I was blocking it out, I was worried about how much of a bowling ball cosy I appear to have made.

We tried it on, and well, he likes the colourway… but it is rather bell-like on his head! Although I tried it on him when three quarters knit (before the decreases), the thing has relaxed in the block rather more than I was expecting it to do!{stamps foot!}.

I though about felt-shrinking, but I think I have better just tip it into “the Frog pond”. MkIII gets started next week I think!
