I looooove this. I want to make it in every color combination possible. Is it ok for baby girls to wear mohawk hats? Because I soooooo want to make them in girly colors, too, but I know how sensitive parents can be about making sure their baby has proper conventional gender identifiers... or something like that.
Anyway, onto the pics!
This is made with the same yarn as the last post--Sugar 'n Cream's Mod Green and Mod Ombre. I made up the design myself using the idea of a knitted heart pattern I had attempted a few days earlier. Each strand of the 'hawk is tied individually and sewn on in rows of three, because I don't usually trust yarn to stay put if I don't tie it securely. So I abandoned the idea of the classic fringe-making trick.
I think the pattern could use a tiny bit of perfecting... I mean, I basically made it all up as I went along, anyway, and I don't particularly like how I can see the bind off edge. I also wasted quite a bit of yarn on the mohawk--it started life about an inch longer, which looked a little unruly, although it was easier to tie up. This length is pretty perfect, though--it stands up on its own and is still very moveable and shape-able!
