FO Friday – Anarchy for Hippies

I finished the stupid black hat.  It wasn’t hard.  I didn’t hate it.  But c’mon…this is the most boring hat ever.

As luck would have it, stupid black hat is directly adjacent to BAMF with one little tweak!

anarcy for hippies

Ta-da!  A little splash of red and it’s perfect now!  I love it…and so does Jerry!  Jerry definitely supports subversive knitting.  The juxtaposition of bad attitude and soft, cozy knitting really tickles my fancy.  It’s the perfect combination for a hippie who’s not really a hippie.

I can’t take all the credit for this masterpiece though.  The idea came from Debbie Stoller’s Happy Hooker crochet book.  I’ve loved it since the book was released, just never had the opportunity to convert it to knitting!  Glad I finally did though!

If I were to repeat this, I would do it differently though.  Recently, I’ve wanted to shrink all the motifs I’m using.  There’s no need to turn one’s head into a giant billboard.  A sly wink  does the job too.  Unfortunately this time, I think a little bit of anarchy could be mistaken for an Avengers plug.  LOL!  Unintended consequences, eh?

I love it anyhow.   If you love the Avengers enough to make that connection, I’m happy to fill that niche too :)   Knitting — the great equalizer,  if it can bring punks & geeks together in harmony, imagine what else it can do?!?
