This week has been more about another hobby . . later blog post . . but I did finish my Zombie Apocalypse hat. You never know what’s going to happen in this crazy world so everyone should have a Zombie Apocalypse hat, right?
This hat was a joy to make. First, it isn’t knit in the round. Hallelujah! It was knit flat and then the three needle bind off made it round.
It was interesting to make because pointy end was shaped with short rows. Instead of wrap and turns (W&T), I did German short rows, which I think are neater. The yarn is Madelinetosh Chunky, which is Aran weight, so it’s pretty quick to make. I have several sweater quantities of Madelinetosh Chunky and I almost always buy a bit more yarn than I’ll need so hopefully I’ll have yarn leftover from some projects to make more of these hats.
