I asked Mr Crafty if he would like me to knit him a hat. "Yes" came the reply, and then the clause "can it be blue, yellow, red and white". Little stripes or big stripes I wondered, "big stripes, obviously". So this hat came to be.
It is apparently inspired by the colours of a Raleigh Burner BMX, and incidentally is the same colours as the flag of the Podlaskie Voivodeship. I used the Tristan pattern by Drops, I like the texture it created, but don't really like how the pattern disappears on the crown. As this hat is on the bright side, I knitted a more subdued hat for Mr Crafty, for work wear. I used the fantastic Farm Beanie pattern by Allison Britt, which I had used previously. I knitted it in some stash that I had previously used to make some hand warmers for Mr Crafty and his terrible glove problem.
Mr Crafty is now ready for winter!
