This one was a fun one to make! Magikarp hat! As seen on the Pokemon Go game! It helps that the pattern was very well written (link below). I set aside nearly a week to work on this hat, but it only took a couple days! I think if I sat down longer for it, I could have finished it in 24 hours.
The pattern tells you exactly where to place each piece, which I think helps if you are not very familiar with this creature.
It was a perfect day for a photo shoot, the lighting made the hat pop!
The shop has been quite busy lately, but I finally managed to get photos of something I made before orders came in.
I felt like getting my needles out and knit, and use up some yarn my sister found at a thrift store. I started off using circular knitting needles since I don’t need to worry about falling stitches or losing needles. But once I got about halfway through, I switched over to double pointed needles (dpn’s). Luckily, the set I had was long enough! This is especially easier once the decreases started.
My personal queue is still (and probably always will be, right crafters!?) quite lengthy. So you just never know what I’ll be posting next!
- Yarn: sorry, the label is in Japanese, but it feels like a silk blend
- Needles: 5.0 mm and 5.5 mm double pointed knitting needles from Clover USA; circular knitting needles from Knitter’s Pride
- Pattern: Flower Pot Designs
