So now that I've spoiled you with stories for the last few days, I have to come clean and admit that I don't have a story for today's awesome free pattern, Opus Spicatum. I just think it's a great looking hat. I haven't made it yet but I totally have yarn in my stash that would work for it.
Also it's a fun name. I didn't know what it meant so I just googled it and Wikipedia tells me that it is "a type of masonry construction used in Roman and medieval times. It consists of bricks, tiles or cut stone laid in a herringbone pattern."
See, knitting is educational as well as useful! I should totally learn Latin. Hmm...
Eethray eeksway unhayiltay istchrayasmay!
