52 hats :: 3 - a Field of Tulips
Last week I was in for something that required a bit more thinking than a simple slouchy hat. I was looking through a magazine with all sorts of stitch patterns (didn't bring my grandmother's book - was afraid it would fall apart) and found one that looked interesting. Then I thought: "those blocks look like tulips" and it sort of started growing wild from there.
The finished hat has no resemblance to the pattern that started the idea, but I kind of like what I did. It does need some tweaking (if i'ts too big to really show the pattern on my giant head it will be too big on most heads) before I'd call it a pattern (as far as patterns go when I'm trying to write them), but I am definitely going to make more of these.
