I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

So, Hunter Hammersen designed a really classic hat pattern. I love the way the ribbing sets off the lattice.

But, I’m a little bit OCD so I opted for ALL lattice. I know, you’re shocked. Now, this seemed like a perfectly reasonable thing to do until I got to the decreases. Once I figured them out, I was home free, right? Wrong. It was too small for my head and I needed to rip out 20 rows of decreases and figure out what row in the pattern I was on before continuing. Thankfully, I’m getting really good at recovering from mistakes.

Motivated by Plucktember, and the stolen time over the holiday, this was still a quick knit. Glamour shots coming soon (post-blocking).

    Love your interpretation of the pattern! I’m impressed that you were able to figure it all out; I’ve never really modified any patterns I’ve knit that much, except to change what kind of heel a sock has. (I do love my short row heels …)

      I’m getting more brave as time goes on. There’s less knitting in a hat than a pair of socks, so even if I totally screw it up, it’s only a couple days of knitting. seems harmless.

    Great job on modifying this pattern – I like the all over lattice version.
    Going through all the trouble of figuring out the decreases was well worth it.

      Thanks! Yes, once I was successful, it was worth it for sure and wasn’t that big a pain, I just wanted it to look decent in the end.

    I like it better with all lattice. I’m a little OCD when it comes to symmetry.
