Contemplating Wavy Gravy

Oh, what fond memories I have of making the One-Ball Wavy Gravy Hat (original design © 2007 Elizabeth McNamee) by ElizaMac.

Jane from South Africa knitted a delightful variation in June 2012 (her blog post is titled Gilded Hat) and I have been thinking about knitting another one ever since.

For those on Ravelry, a pattern page is available here that includes a link to the free pattern.

Elizabeth's original blog post:  Noro Kureyon One-Ball Wavy Gravy Hat Pattern

I first stumbled across The Wavy Gravy hat (surprise, surprise) while on a late-night blog crawl. After knitting two in quick succession, I made a third using "Christmas Pudding" colors and donated it to charity.

If you have never seen a Christmas Pudding knit hat, prepare to say "Awwww."

The Wavy Gravy hat I will knit will not be a Christmas Pudding.  Rather, it will be more like this one again by Jane from South Africa - Two Hats

Cute, cute, cute!

Do you remember a TV show back in the '90s called Mad About You? Their last year on the air, they had a baby girl and she wore a pumpkin had like these - don't remember where it was from, but I think it was a boutique.

At first I thought it was a Christmas pudding or a tea cosy, but as a hat ...... Brilliant.

This hat looks so fun! Do have fun with yours when you make it.

Thanks for the links back to my blog - I do like to think I inspired you to use the pattern again! Love the Christmas pudding version.
