I did it! I finished college! Yay! I have successfully acquired a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics. Now all I need is to figure out something to do with it…. But anyway.
At Tulane, it’s a tradition for students to decorate their caps in some way for graduation. Naturally, I decided to cover mine in yarn. Because why not.
I actually really like the way this turned out. I think it’s cool that the pattern sorta resembles both waves and DNA (not that my major had anything to do with either of those things but still) and with the color gradient it looks like the sort of pretty thing that is exactly my style.
In case anyone’s curious, I used something called the wave stitch, and there’s a tutorial for that available here. I then affixed it to my hat with a lot of hot glue. Since one side is slightly longer than the other, this resulted in two sides hanging over the edge more than the other two, resulting in a kind of weird look if viewed from any angle other than the top. But whatever. I like it.
So yeah. That’s it. I am officially done with college. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go sleep for a week.
