Knitted Hat Gone Wrong [Apr. 5th, 2006|04:13 pm]

Tree Spirit is too tall Tree Spirit is too tall

Little Guy Fits Little Guy Fits




This was not meant to be a gnome hat, look gay, or otherwise be a bad hat. Argh. I must start over. This is the first chart I've ever made, and it turned out so so wrong. *sniff*

Thanks! Too bad it doesn't fit or anything. Argh. Alot of time spent and so far no payoff.

It was supposed to be for Torben. My head is only 19" and his is 22, so it needs to be bigger around and not as tall.

It is very cute and I think if you just scale it down you'll be just fine. :)

The problem is, it doesn't just "scale down" as it gets too small to see any detail. I might make it into a backpack instead.

Would using a sport weight yarn on smaller needles make it scaleable?

It is worsted weight on size 5 needles already. Hmmm (thinks).

Can't do it. It's supposed to be for Torben, thus I try to remake it and remove the gayness.

Nope, it is supposed to be a prize for Torben.

I... thought you said it messed up and you can't give it to him... that you were going to redo it? That's why I suggested selling this one. Someone out there would wear it as it is. You are more patient than I am if you're willing to pull it all out! :)

Yes,..I must make it more manly to give it to the intended recipient.

Thanks! I designed it. It is in progress. I started making my own knitting patterns awhile back.

I only make custom knits for people who I really love alot. My best friends, my sister, christabel, and hopefully when this is finished, my boyfriend will all have custom designed stuff. It takes about 8 times longer to make your own pattern than to knit someone else's so far for me. I guess I always find a mistake or two I have to fix, so I'm about to restart this hat.
