Jon, my hubby, loves to go hunting in the fall. His prey: partridge, or “forest chickens” as I like to call them. This year he wants me to tag along with him. He’s got a little shotgun for me to carry, should I find myself inclined to shoot one them thar critters. I’m not sure how I’d feel about doing that, but I’d like to try it once. I may like it. I may not. I’m just glad he’s not a deer hunter. Most of all, he’s content just to be walking in the woods on a crisp fall day.
So, according to regulations, I must be wearing a neon orange hat. Great. I look like a dork in hats. A little search on Ravelry and I found something that I could try, something that might make me look as dorkyless as possible.
The Huntress Hat
Pattern: Star Crossed Slouchy Beret
Yarn: Briggs & Little Heritage in Hunter Orange
Needles: Size US 10 1/2 / 6.5mm
What a great pattern! It’s very easy and the cable design is very cool. I did it all in one evening, and blocked it the next morning. I love it. I think I could actually wear one of these out in public, but not in this colour of course. I will most definitely be making more of these babies.
