I have a really great friend from my University days, and she asked me to make her a few Edmonton Oilers hats. Even though, I am generally a Montreal fan, I decided to knit them up anyway.
I used my Retro Hockey Hat (Rav Link — sorry, I don’t have it posted anywhere else online) inspired pattern and made a new chart. I love how these turned out! They are super fun. I used Patons Classic Wool in Royal Blue and Aran, and Cascade Pacific in orange. Maura requested an orange pom pom for her hat:
Check out the points I racked up for these hats:
Pom Pom hat:
hat = 1
yardage: about 130 yds = 1.5 pts
Designing: 4 pts
Colour work: 2pts
Other two hats:
hat = 1
yardage = 1.5
colour work = 2
Total: 4.5 x 2 = 9
GRAND TOTAL: 17.5 points!
Unfortunately, Edmonton will not make the playoffs, neither will Montreal. But I have decided that I am cheering for the Florida Panthers! I love cheering for the underdogs (or in this case, the undercats)! This will be their first entry into the playoffs in a decade, therefore they have to win!
Who will you be cheering for in the NHL playoffs?
