When I saw the opening ceremonies on 2/12 for the winter games, and noticed team USA kool RL hat, I had to get it. Turns out its sold out. Too bad RL, you could have sold millions! But- someone on Ravelry charted a similar item!! Need I say more?????
Mods: made the hat shorter, and the decreases faster (Olympics, right?) still a bit too big. Perhaps if I shrink it a bit? Also, using alpaca for the white color, (which was just a bit thinner than the cascade 220,) was not great, cause it changed the tension. Voilà! Ready for the slops of NYC!
Pattern: Olympic Reindeer Hat by Helena Bristow (Ravelry link)
Yarns: Cascade Yarns Eco Alpaca, Cascade Yarns 220 Wool, Knit Picks Wool of the Andes
Needles: Addi circ, 16" US 6
GO Team USA!
