Modification Monday: Physalis Hat



Original Pattern: Physalis

Knitter Extraordinaire: Miyayo (Ravelry ID, blog)

Mods:  Used the leaf stitch design from the original shawl to create a slightly slouchy hat with great texture, also went down in gauge from Aran to DK. Details on her project page can be found here.

What Makes This Awesome: I love Miyayo's take on this gorgeous pattern, and turned it into a stunning 1 skein project. I am a bit jealous of this, because who doesn't want to have a fabulous one skein project that looks this beautiful?! The crown decreases are wonderfully one, as well. The next time I look at a highly textured shawl, I'll be thinking about how well it might turn into a beautiful, slouchy hat. This definitely gives me ideas....
