I love Burberry. I want to knit a variant of this, seeing as I don’t yet have a nice wool hat for winter. I like the use of reverse stockinette in the cables; I don’t think I’ve ever seen that before.

Amelia Earhart Aviator Cap: Done!

k, I redid the hat. And it fits! And it’s cute! I feel like a classy dame.

Amelia, finally finished Tuesday, August 8th, 2006
Pattern: Amelia Earhart Aviator Cap
Yarn: 100% cotton frogged from a green sweater
Needles: tiny circulars, ~2.75 mm
Dimensions: Le size de ma tête
Pattern Notes: This is a reknit of the original, far-too-large attempt. I really like it!
Would I knit it again? I just did. It was fun. I want to knit it for a bunch of other people; maybe one of my cousins for Christmas.

Cat vs. Hat

Amelia Earhart Aviator Cap, sorta finished Friday, July 21st, 2006
Pattern: Amelia Earhart Aviator Cap
Yarn: 100% cotton frogged from a green sweater
Needles: 3.75mm circulars
Dimensions: Giant x humongous x cyclopean
Watched: The Kingston Symphony performing the 1812 overture (with cannons!).
Pattern Notes: I don’t know if it’s just my loose knitting, but the gauge was way off. If I had knit it on 3.25mm needles, it would have worked out better. I liked the beginning of the pattern and the end, but the middle was filled with way-too-complicated row-by-row instructions. I so don’t have time for that. I don’t like paying attention to anything. However…
Would I knit it again? I would knit it again. And I shall have to knit it again, because it was way too big the first time.
