I submitted a pattern for Knitty’s winter issue, but it was rejected because it was a similar concept to Piggle which was published recently. So I will offer it here for anyone interested in a quick gift knit.
I’ll be back soon with some hot off the needles projects, but for now, here’s a cut and paste from my pattern submission with a link to the pdf:
Pig tails and Pony tails and Chickens, Oh My! All in the urban backyard.
Wear this whimsical yet practical hat with pride.
The idea for this hat started when I was (yet again) about to leave the house in winter without a hat on because I did not want to stretch out my hat with my ponytail. P-funk asked why I just didn’t make a hat that I could wear with a ponytail. I started think of ways to accomplish this without leaving drafty holes in the hat open all the time.
The idea developed from there to include pigtails. Yes, most adult women do not wear pigtails, but those of use with bobs know that it is the most practical way to keep our hair out of the way. Maybe the hat is a bit much for you, but it can be a great fun and useful hat for a girl in your life. The perfect thing to grab as you run outside, whether you are going out to the store or out to feed the chickens.
And I will leave you with Zeeba giving you her fierce look.
