Bad Hair Day (…a green theme?)

December 14, 2011

It’s Wednesday! Only one more week of work for me before an 11-day break from work!  Eleven Days! Can you even imagine the things that can be made during those days?!

Ohhh man, too pumped.

In the meantime here’s a hat I made during my second year of grad school. Architecture school means lots of nights with little or no sleep, and that means if I could get by without doing my hair for an extra half-hour of sleep, that’s what happened. So here’s a nice little hat that can cover up a bad hair and actually make it look like you tried to look like that! ha!

ahhh, I couldn’t get away with cropping out my head with this one…

I actually completely forgot about this hat until I posted about the green circle scarf because this was where one of the scraps came from. It was Lion Brand Nature’s Choice Organic Cotton in Olive (? maybe? or mustard? I can’t really tell from my screen, and I don’t really remember)

Note: It must seem like that I’m an avid Lion Brand Yarn user and obsessed with all things green (gum, yarn, soda, etc). Neither are true. All coincidental.  Non-green, non-Lion Brand things are forth coming.

Note 2: I was just looking for the pattern I used for this and the blog isn’t up anymore! I’ll be on the lookout for another similar pattern, but if you find one that you like, let me know!

    Did you ever find the pattern for this Bad Hair Day cap? I would love to make a bunch of these for family and friends, and me too. Actually me first! Is it crochetted and knitted? The top li
    Ooks like diuble crochet, but the edge around your face look like a knitted ribbing of some sort…maybe a seed stitch? These might make neat chemo caps for breast cancer patients too.
    I hope you found the pattern! I love the look!
