Fructose, the hat

fructose

Fructose is the most water soluble sugar of all the sugars. It’s maligned for being a major cause of obesity, insulin resistance, and elevated “bad” cholesterol.

Ok. With that out of the way, this is Fructose, by Alex Tinsley. She blogs at Dull Roar¬†and her patterns are available on Ravelry. Fructose is a very nice hat that won’t make you fat or sick. It will just keep your head cozy and your ears warm. I suppose Alex¬†named this hat Fructose because it looks sweet.

My Fructose is knit with just over half a skein of Malabrigo Rios. This orange one is in the sunset colorway. And my lime one is the same yarn, in the lettuce colorway (and wouldn’t it have been better named lime).

As you can see, the hat can be pulled low on the nape of the neck. That’s because the ribbing has a nice deep v-cut. It could help out the pony-tailed population.

And, as for the top, no dreaded come-to-a-point.

All in all, one good hat. Thanks, Alex!
