Why the "tooth hat"?

grandcarriage's picture

Because when it's worn, it looks a bit like a molar...

I'm going to make a white one for my dentist, and one for her baby...

But since this one is mostly blue, I guess I'll call it the "blue-tooth hat." It's kinda fun....

I designed it myself...I had

I designed it myself...I had a 5 inch wide strip of handknit fabric that I steeked off a "too big panel" of a sweater I was knitting for my father. I knit until it was long enough to fit around my head and kitchener stitched the ends together... Then I picked up a stitch every other row on the bottom, and knit a rolled hem (2 rolls of k1p1 rib, 7 rows of stockinette). Then, I picked up the stitches on the top, knit 4 rounds in reverse stockinette (purl side showing) and divided the stitches by 4 and put them on double points... Then, starting at the ends of two adjacent needles, I kitchenered together the first half of the stitches on each needle...I repeated that on each needle end, creating the little points... Then I sewed the remaining small hole closed and sewed in the ends. easy peasy.

How about the "mind masher hat" or the "brain grinder" ... it kind of reminds me of an upside down mortar... :-)

If you want us to admire the hats then you have to stop smiling - the smile dazzles me and distracts from what I'm suppposed to be looking at. Just my opinion ...
