The Swedes have a rather bizarre sense of humour sometimes. I have learned about this to some extent, as partner is from Sweden. But let’s not go there….
Now a pair of Swedish knitters have designed the “Hipstörmössan” – or Hipster Hat.
Not Amy Duncan’s Ironic Hipster that I knitted with Indigodragonfly’s luscious yarn.
Nope, designers Tove Greitz and Minna Magnusson have designed the Hipster Hat for the frozen ear:
And here it is modeled for us:
While I agree that it’s pretty funny, I confess I’m at a bit of a loss. I mean…if your ears are frozen, why not just knit a hat that’s long enough to cover the ears? Granted, the little ear hat is pretty cute, and would be a very quick knit. But still, isn’t this much better (and superbly hip)?
Maybe I’m totally missing the point, which isn’t that all unusual. If so, I do hope that someone will enlighten me?
