OTN: Fauxhawk hat
So I have had "knitter envy" since seeing my FAVORITE rock star, Martin Gore of Depeche Mode wear this "fauxhawk" hat onstage on their last tour at the end of 2005.

I ended up finding the woman responsible for knitting the hat for Martin on the internet (see the picture of her and Martin wearing their fauxhawk hats below) and we have kept in touch. And I was SO excited as both a knitter AND a Martin Gore fan when her and her friend published a book with the pattern.

I wanted to make the British flag version (using pink, black and gray) like she is wearing in the picture below which meant learning intarsia. I just wanted to praise here...I learned the intarsia technique this weekend using the videos from this website!!!! Below I have included the finished first side of my very own fauxhawk hat!

I am so pleased...I am about to get off the net for tonight to work on the second side!

I think this is great and kudos to you to pursue and find the designer! Any chance of us having the pattern too??

That is such a cool hat.

Your first side of intarsia looks really good. I can't wait to see the finished product.

I bet you could sell a lot of those at the Winter Olympics.

That is exactly where my hat comes from! They really do have some great patterns in this book...I think there are about 3 other things in it I want to make. (They also have a myspace for this book http://www.myspace.com/prettyinpunk_knit_head )
Thanks for posting that...

I never thought about substituting different country flags for national pride, I maybe totally off my nut, but I don't think it would be too hard to do...I should try to create an American flag one (And Susan, I just bet you COULD make an Aussie one!!!)
