Modification Monday: Headgehog Love Hat

Original Pattern: Hedgehog Love Scarf

Knitter Extraordinaire: Heather (Ravelry ID, blog)

Mods: Focusing on the chart, turned the scarf design into a slouchy hat. Project page can be found here.

What Makes This Awesome: Now, I'm totally biased here, but this is a great mod. If you are comfortable with stranded knitting, almost any chart can be adapted to be a hat. And what's a quicker FO than a hat?! Heather knit this great slouchy hat using the chart from the scarf pattern,and adapted for the fit and the length of the slouch. Keep this hat in mind the next time you are admiring a larger colourwork pattern, maybe a hat is just what you need.*

*or will need, in the winter. Which is happening right now in some places (here's looking at you, Australia and New Zealand!.

Yes, winter has certainly set in her in Southern Australia and one of those hats would be very welcome! Might have to cast one on :)
