Anemoi Hat

Finally finished and blocked, here is the Anemoi Hat! See the swirls of the wind gods gusting above the ribbing ...


Eunny was very gracious, and thank you to all those who encouraged me to email her. Quite the sensible thing to do! She was very complimentary and was pleased that I had contacted her. As she wrote in her email: "My only concern with this kind of thing is if a new pattern somehow shafts people who have payed full price for the original off my site – for example, if you’d included the chart in the pattern and wanted to give it away for free. That’s not the case here, of course – I say go ahead." Excellent!


After a few more pictures, I will be passing this off to a friend for the addition of a fleece liner. I hope to have the pattern posted this weekend!

I forgot: Happy Project Spectrum for February!

What an incredible homage to that pattern. I love how you used the swirls but still respected Eunny's IP. It is just lovely. Once again, I could not fathom giving it away.

I thought the mittens were spectacular, but the hat...stunning!

(imagining that design on a vase or serving plate or...)

liz is right - HOW can you give this away!?!

Gorgeous hat! Are there mittens to match?

wow, how neat and innovative! in other colors, the swirls could pass for foliage. nice job!

as difficult as it would be, it'd feel wonderful to give away something like that. the recipient is truly special and hopefully knows as much to receive something so cool.
