Tentacles of Terror

This hat is based on the pattern Unspeakable Horrors by Finlay Logan. My second Fair Isle project in a week. I think I'm getting better at keeping an even tension on both yarns. The Paton's Classic Wool is a joy to knit with - especially after my last project with the despised acrylic.

The decreases on the top are chaotic and scary - just like the dreaded old one himself! Don't look too closely, or you will go Mad! Mad I say!

OK, it must be me, but those little things look like the Atari Space Invaders... I'm sorry if that was not what I'm supposed to see... :/

Yes, the do kinda look like Space Invaders. It is impossible to capture the ultimate evil of the Great Old Ones in a 20 x 20 stranded colorwork chart. Space Invaders are kinda evil tho. :)

Do you knit for money? I'd pay good gp for a Scrabble cap.

Your wish is my command. I thought you might be a bit cold with that newly shorn pate of yours.

And your gold is no good here. You'll just have to owe me a favor. :)
