Dulaan Hats

One with hear-phlaps,

and one without:

Peggy made up a wonderful pattern and, using Avalanche Yarn from Ryan, whipped out six of these cuties while we were away for a long knitting weekend. wow! My hero. Peggy gave Ryan the pattern, so maybe she'll post it...

Peggy has also hit the goal of 5 items for Dulaan, plus one. So, Ryan, chalk her up on the 'completed' side, not just the 'wanna be' side. I'm next! I've almost got mine done!

Here's all six.

I love the one with the little topknot! I shall urge Ryan to post it as I could get into making a couple dozen of those.

And where the hell did you get RED Avalanche yarn? She made me take all the gold stuff home.

Fortunately I like it.

Rabbitch: The yarn came in a big ol' plastic bag from Ryan's vehicle at the Dulaan knit-in at MaryB's house! Don't know how you missed it! And I LOVED the red. When I picked up the first one, 3 more skeins followed it into my knitting basket, and then 2 skeins of taupe leapt in for balance. I should have taken more, but at that point, the pattern hadn't yet presented itself in my brain. Speaking of the pattern, I'm sure there are a lot of similar hat patterns out there. The one I wrote up worked great with 1 small skein (~80 yds) of Avalanche yarn using US Size 13 and 11 needles. Peggy

Peggy, I got to the knit-in late, so likely everyone had swiped all of the red. Either that or Ryan knew I'd just take whatever she handed me, so I took the entire great big plastic bag of taupe, gold and a sort of reddish/brown color which likely has a name but I'm in need of coffee right now, so forget it.

If you'd like to/are able to share the pattern, I'd be pleased to use it on some of this "stuff" I still have here. 37 skeins. What was I thinking? Was I noticeably drunk?
