Bloody Stupid Johnson

This is the Bloody Stupid Johnson hat from beloved Knitty. I love how it turned out!

When we first published the pattern, there were a couple of errors in it. It's my job to ensure that this doesn't happen, and I feel pretty sick about it when I miss something. I worked out the corrections as soon as I realized there were errors... but I wanted to knit this hat, to test my work. (Also, come on, it's a brilliant design! I couldn't resist it.)

I changed a few things - the gauge, ribbing, and crown decreases - but I worked the short rows and cable panel as per the pattern. They're the parts I had to test, and I'm happy to say they worked out perfectly! There are a few more photos on Flickr (click any one of these photos to get there), and further details are on Ravelry (username yarnageddon).

On another topic, the Susie and Rachael neckwarmer patterns are just about ready... I should have them available this weekend, hopefully! Things always take longer than I think they will... I'm sure this never happens to anyone else.

Beautiful! I've just printed this off and added it to the never ending to knit list!

That is a seriously cool hat. And it looks great on you.

How did you change the crown decreases? I'm making this hat for my daughter, and she asked me to eliminate the gathered crown in the original pattern.
