This is a super quick knit, just in time for the premiere of season 4.
Remember that extremely bright, primary-colored yarn I posted a while back? Well, I finally finished the project it was meant for.
I present to you, Starbuck’s Mandala Hat:
For those of you who are looking confused, this is the first of (hopefully) many designs inspired by fandom. In this case, Battlestar Galactica. Starbuck (played by the always kick-ass Katee Sackhoff) paints this mandala in shades of yellow, red, and blue on the walls of her apartment on Caprica, not realizing that it has much greater significance in the search for Earth and her destiny.
I loved the colors and spiral-pattern of the design, and I thought it would make a perfect hat. It didn’t take long to make, once I sorted everything out with the spirals and stopped putting it aside for other things. Keep an eye out for better (modeled!) photos and a link to the pattern later this week.
Believe it or not, there actually are finished objects here in Quirkyland.
I didn’t post these when I finished them because they were semi-surprise gifts, but since they’ve been given and (hopefully) worn, I figure it’s safe.
L’s hat was a basic roll-brim hat, no pattern, knit in Louet Gems worsted weight on US 7 needles.
Both were quick and fun to knit, and it was really nice to finish something so quickly.
