OK, I know this is one ugly hat, but it was just a practice piece to try out stranding. No pattern, just some random shapes and patterns I made up as I went along just to get the hang of stranding.

Wonderful job, Mason! I think it's great that you jump into new techniques! You're an inspiration to the rest of us!

I think it looks great! I am working on my first colorwork right now too (stranded though not intarsia). I bet intarsia is much trickier.

Thanks, it's actually stranding, I gave up on the intarsia out of frustration.

I think it is a rather nice hat. It reminds me of South or Central American indigenous art.

yeah, you mentioned that. I'm so observant! haha! Anyway it looks great. Did you use one hand for both colors? Thats the only way I can do it. I need to try and learn it two-handed.

I think you did good! Love the color. I was just looking at a pattern for a boy that has trains on it and my grandson (age 2 and 1/2 and addicted to trains!) would love it. I have never tried stranding or intarsia...maybe I will now!
Thanks for showing us!

I did use both hands for a lot of it, still need to practice more on that.

I don't think your hat is ugly at all... I think it is really cool actually. I have been knitting forever and I have never tried that... I love that you are so feerless when it comes to trying new stuff!

I think it looks great, especially for a first attempt. My first try at stranding was so puckered it was awful!

:rofl: One of the guys in a Google group I own actually wants to buy this ugly hat. I told him I couldn't possibly sell it as there are way too many mistakes in it.

3 yo DD is sitting on my lap looking at FOs and she took one look at your hat and said, "Mama make me that blue hat?" :thumbsup:

Nice work. :)

Looks good to me! I did a liyyle purse for my niece that had a skull on it. I felted it and it hid all kinds of stuff!

Holy Ship! Mason how can you say that's ugly! When the image came up, I actually gasped, I kid you not. That is my favorite colour and you did such a fine design, come on! I will now hesitate to show you my colorwork projects coz you'll really think those are ugly! I love to do that, just add colors and random stuff, I'm making some legwarmers right now like that and they're orange and rose and yellow and oh boy,
I'm not sure if I will wear them on the street. But that hat IS FABULOUS. I might just make one based on it.:thumbsup:
