FO: Pirate Fisherman’s Hat

Arrggg… avast me hearties! Here do be the most devilish hat this side of Davy Jones’ Locker.

pirate fishermans hat 008

Name: scurvy dog do be called Pirate Fisherman’s Hat

Pattern: it do be a fearful marriage of Elizabeth Zimmerman’s Maltese Fisherman’s Hat to be found in her Knitter’s Almanac and those sea dogs over at Hello Yarn’s “We Call Them Pirates” hat.

Size(s): To fit my ghastly 22″ head.

Yarn: I do be having used King Cole Magnum Chunky in 206 for the main sail and 10 for the skulls.

Needles: My weapon of choice do be a metal 5 mm 100 cm circular device used in the “Magic Loop” mystical technique, and the addition of another 80 cm lasso for 2 circs for the top.

Knitting style: A right ole mix up of English and Continental, in the flat and in the round.

Recipient: that do be me, me ole mates.

Modifications: there do be a change of gauge from EZ’s original and a change in size.

Notes: this will be keeping me ole noggin’ warm on those cold, lonesome nights on land and on sea. If I do be havin’ the correct 6 mm circulars it do be fittin’ a little looser. All comments welcomed, especially those in ole pirate talk do be ‘specially wanted. Arrggg … 😀
