Then I started this hat, following an in-store pattern, picked up with this yarn.
Turned out the pattern was a recipe. Several rows of entrelac rectangles, it said. There were specifics for the left leaning triangles. There are specifics for right leaning ones shortly, followed by two recipe options for the decreases. Nothing about the rectangles in between except a number of rounds of rectangles done by the author. Now that I know the pattern is a recipe, I am at least prepared for the next surprise, as I suspect the decreases aren't what I remember of the shop sample.
Could be I just don't remember. Could be the scramble to find guidance for the rectangles placed other hat images in my head. Did I mention that this is my first entrelac foray?
So I will be considering multiple sources for the top if this hat. Good thing I was planning on a creative day-off challenge.
Doubly good there are containers of soup and ratatouille in the freezer.
