Stripes hate me...

...but I love them anyway!
Ravelry is really great. So many wonderful projects, so many great patterns and so many of them available for free. I saw a very cute hat and the pattern for it can be found here on the great Dutch blog of KNITTING AJOUR. I knew I had to make one the minute I saw it.

Stripes always seem to mean trouble for me. While knitting the hat I noticed that mine looked slightly different from knittinajours', but that didn't make me stop and check the pattern. No, I carried on regardless. When I was sort of done with my hat, the mistake was very obvious. Instead of decreasing every third row I had done it every fourth. I had no other option than to rip my third (!) striped hat and start over. Once it was finished for the second time I wanted to check if it would look good when worn. With no cute little baby around, I had to improvise.

Now it's getting a bit ridiculous...

?!? - But I must admit he was a very patient model...

My friend already received the hat and it fits her baby girl very well. I got the cutest mms ever and would love to post it here, but my mobile won't let me.
