Whatever we were before, we are now.. the Hatquisition!
I’m sure Vivienne would faint if she caught the Inquisitor in this get up, but let’s face it, it can get cold in Thedas.
I was inspired to make this hat after all the E3 coverage got me so excited about Dragon Age Inquisition I could barely sit still. I’m sorry knitting enthusiasts, but after that game comes out, it’s going to devour my life. Over 100 hours if you are cursed to be a completionist as I am? When will I have time to knit?
Generally I prefer to knit hats in the round, but doing intarsia in the round is a huge pain. This hat is designed to be knit flat, then sewn up the back. I cast on provisionally so that I could go back and knit the brim in the round. This was my first time trying magic loop knitting. I prefer the feel of DPs but it’s hard to argue with the lack of ladders.
This is actually the second version of this hat. When I finished the first one I ended up not being super psyched about the way the shape turned out. But it did have a cool dragon crest along the back that I omitted from this one in the interest of simplifying the pattern. Hopefully it found a good home after I gave it to dgaider and the other writers at GaymerX.
