A much delayed post, looking at more closely the Space Invaders Hats I knit for my 'simply sublime' yarn review, that I promised to share with you 2 weeks ago! I can give you excuses and apologies and what not, but I've been doing that a lot lately, and will probably do it some more yet. Combined with the fact that I won't have regular internet access until the very end of this month (thank you very much for that, Virgin Media), let's just blow past this and talk about the hats!
Initially, the fair isle had a different band above the space invaders, that looked like peaks and valleys. I decided, while knitting the hats, that this design wouldn't fit well and would look unbalanced. Instead I repeated the first section of the pattern above the space invaders which creates a more clearly defined 'band' around the hat.
