Knitted Unicorn Hat

Who hasn’t dreamed of being a unicorn? Terrorist that who. So unless youre a terrorist you are going to want to knit yourself your very own

Unicorn Beanie

The idea for the unicorn beanie came to be when Craftster user KrisCreates was having a playdate with her kid and a friend’s child and the little girl started admiring KrisCreates’ son’s mohawk beanie. The little girl of course wanted a beanie of her own, but she wanted hers to be a unicorn hat. So KrisCreates adapted a basic mohawk beanie pattern to include ears and a horn and voila…unicorn magic!

“The hat is knit in the round and for the earflaps and ears I picked up and knit the stitches onto the hat. The horn was knit separately in a smaller gauge, stuffed with a little bit of poly-fibre fill and sewn on.”

Unfortunately she did not post up an exact pattern, but all one would need to do is modify any mohawk style beanie and youve got your own magical unicorn hat. Now go knit yours quick or else the terrorists have won!

Best $600 you will ever spend

Its not often I find reason to shell out $600 for a sweater, but if I had some spare change right now I would definitely drop it on this amazing hand knit (thats the key here) sweater from etsy seller elf518.

Robot Pixel Mash-up Fair Isle Sweater

This awesome sweater is hand made tailored to your measurements, color choices and each one has a slightly unique pattern.

“the floral motif in this sweater is taken from a german lace chart published in 1597”

Of course that old German lace chart has been given a hip modern twist with robots and other pixely goodness. $600 may seem like a steep price but when you consider that each sweater is handmade without a machine, unique and takes 8 weeks to make…well, $600 doesnt seem all that outrageous.

Knitted King Boo hat

Was trolling through some knitting sites today and came across this awesome knitted beanie. Its a few years old but its new to me so I figure its new to some of you as well! Now bow down before the almighty…

King Boo

I always thought the Boos were some of the cutest characters in the Mario world so needless to say Im in love with this hat. It looks like its a standard beanie knit in a round using this pattern chart. This pattern was created by Kelly of Purl Friday and is simple yet cute. I think Id like to try it out but felt the hat after for extra fuzzy Booness.
