Today's Doomvember pattern is Suture! This hat uses a technique I've been toying with for a few years now (I think I made the first prototype in the car on the way to Michigan from Portland in fall of 2010, so... yeah, awhile.) It involves using long floats on the front of the work which you then pick up later as if you were fixing a dropped stitch. The result is a weird ladder effect that causes ruching and gathering.
The finished look is a bit creepy and "stitched up"... "zombie couture" maybe? Or, at the very least, a good way to keep those brains hot and tasty (in some luscious Madelinetosh, too. Nom.)
Suture can be found in the "Miscellaneous Mayhem" section of the book, and on Ravelry here. Learn more about the book or grab a preorder over on the Cooperative Press website! You can also preorder on Ravelry and have it delivered straight into your library the second it's released.
We're almost done with the Doomvember tour- you can see the schedule here, or you can just stick around because the last few posts are all here on Dull Roar ;-)
And finally- a very happy and tasty Thanksgiving to the US folks, and a happy Hanukkah to those who celebrate! (Is it okay to put gravy and cranberry sauce on latkes? Because that sounds yummy....)
