Is It a Hat or a Headband?
Last weekend Jeff and Audrey treated us to breakfast at Jinky's on the Sunset Strip for Larry's birthday. Of course, breakfast was delicious....love the omelettes at Jinky's.
After A & J gifted Larry with lots of cool b-day gifts, we walked outside to leave. Audrey snapped on her latest knitted fashion, Calorimetry from the latest knitty.com. Here is Designer, Kathryn Schoendorf's description of this piece,
"Calorimetry is a scientific term describing the measurement of heat lost or gained. Knit hats are a wonderful way to block out the cold, but when you have long hair it usually requires wearing it down, not often the most comfortable option on a blustery day. This headscarf allows you to wear your hair up while keeping your ears warm and preventing heat from escaping from the top of your head."
Audrey knitted her Calorimetry with leftover yarn. The directions say that about one skein is requred. I really like this design, but I don't like keeping track of short rows. Even though I learned to knit at the age of 7 and didn't learn crochet until I was around 17, I've realized that I'm a better crocheter than knitter. I might have to figure out how to translate this adorable pattern into crochet terms. You don't need to have long hair for this darling accessory to look good!
So, is it a hat or a headband?
