Collision

The second men's hat pattern is ready: Collision. I made the hat for my brother in law for Christmas (I gave you a sneak peak of it, remember?). Just like the Mind reader, this too is created with ribbing and cables, but quite different ones. The hat is symmetrical, and the cable pattern goes all the way up on front and back, colliding at the top. Some friends of mine said it reminded them of tractor tracks. I guess that's masculine enough. The pattern is quite easy to memorize - or rather, you'll see where it goes after a few rounds. I made two hats, because the first one was too small. I still enjoyed knitting the second. The cable pattern just craves for another round, then another, and suddenly it's finished. I like that sometimes.

All I said about warmth and yarn for the Mind reader goes for this one, too, so I won't repeat it. I'll knit another round instead.

Dette er en spesielt fin herrelue, og de syns jeg det er vanskelig å finne. Ofte er mønster til gutte-ting ganske kjedelige. Hipp hurra for fint mønster.
