The danger of being a knitter or a crocheter is looking at something an thinking, “I can make that.” Many times things I know I can make I end up not, mostly because of the time involved. This is one of those cases where I thought it and did it.
My friend Elanor and I were at a con when we came across a vendor selling crochet hats. There were all sorts of hats, some representing different fandoms – Star Wars, Star Trek, Firefly, and of course Doctor Who. In fact, a hat similar this one caught our attention. And I knew I had seen a pattern for one before. So I uttered those fateful words, and then went shopping for yarn.
This is one of the first times I tried working color changes. It surprised me how easy they were to do. Elanor and I agreed that it would look better as a beanie, so I left off the ear flaps. I think it came out quite well.
