Rose Byrne’s Knitted Hat in “X-Men: First Class”

X-Men: First Class — Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne and James McAvoy

Last night, Mike and I were watching X-Men: First Class on Netflix. We had such high expectations for the movie, having loved the previous movies, but wow, what a snoozer. The story was all over the place, but it was nice to watch Michael Fassbender (Mike: “Wow, he makes a receding hairline look good) and James McAvoy (sigh…).

I perked up though when I saw the hat Rose Byrne was wearing in one scene (pictured above).  Looks like a basic hat with a little rib around the brim and a moss or raspberry stitch for the hat body. I wish I were skilled enough to come up with my own pattern, but alas. So far I can only do scarf patterns – but I will master drafting a hat pattern! I found this free hat and scarf pattern online that was first published in the British magazine, Prima. It looks perfect! Just a little leery of adapting a British pattern, but I think it will be manageable. Project!
