I present to you: The hat that looks... Freudian. Focus on the cable crossings with the unfortunate-looking purl stitches. Where I messed up. The purl stitches are the "head" and the object itself is shown in its natural position, hanging down.


Yeah. I'm not wearing that in public.

I can kinda see it, but I'm having to look for it. If nothing had been said I probably never would have noticed it.

Have to agree. I am trying very hard to see anything remotely phallic in those cables and have failed. :-D

Hmm, yes, I can see what you mean, but not without the explanation. Wouldn't have come up with it myself.

Batty has a weiner hat! Batty has a weiner hat!

I think Mr. Batty has his mind in the gutter ;-)

Even with the explanation, I can't see it. But the important thing is that you see it, hence, frog and reknit :)

I snorted. I couldn't help it. Apparently I am twelve.

Zonda said...

hehe..um.er..I agree, I didn't notice it until you pointed it out ;)

I can't see it either. Nowhere near like all those leaf shawls. That it seems only I see :) But I think you should finish it and send it to Poops!

My mom has a garden fountain like this, except they're all pointing up and water spurts out of them. She's so angry that I pointed it out that she covers it up when I'm there, which only makes it more amusing.

In conclusion, I see it, and I wouldn't wear the hat in public either. :-)

Definitely a hat to give to the mister. It will make you smile every time he wears it. ;)

Could not see it first, for me cables are fiddly I know I cannot watch tv when I am doing this stitch. Julie.C

I kinda like the "wang cable" ;)

Do you have a pattern for it?

OK - I had to look to see it, I don't think it's all that obvious. But you can always change it up if you don't like it.
