It’s not secret right now that I’m insanely into the comic book superhero Daredevil. It started with the Netflix show (which of course you need to watch). It just went wild from them. Of course my fandom was going to influence my knitting!
I used a combination of patterns to make the the hat. Doris Kenney’s Super Easy Chullo pattern, and The Adults-Only Devil Hat from the Debbie Stoller’s Stitch N Bitch book. (You’ll need to log into Ravelry to look at the patterns.) I also attempted duplicate stitching for Daredevil’s DD logo, and, when I got frustrated with that, I switched over to whip stitch embroidery, sort of.
It turned out ok, in my opinion as the maker of this hat. The one horn turned out more teddy bear ear than horn. And I know Daredevil doesn’t have a tail, but I couldn’t resist the tail parts of the hat.
So, I’m considering this a prototype. Something to perfect. It didn’t take too long to knit, and only used two small skeins of two different red worsted weight yarn, size US 9 needles, as least for my gauge.
That’s my Daredevil hat. Have you ever knit something for a fandom? How did it turn out? Link me some photos!
