Game Knitting to Legally Blonde




On Friday nights, a cafe in my neighborhood does movie nights, and a bunch of my friends and I go hang out and knit. Last Friday, the movie was Legally Blonde, and because we were all familiar with it, it seemed like the perfect opportunity for a little game knitting! Game knitting is a pattern/game by Lee Meredith, and it works a bit like a drinking game. You make a list of things that happen in the movie, and every time you see one of those things on screen, you do something. For this hat I just switched from knitting to purling, and I love the effect. I started the ribbing while we were hanging out before the movie started, and I managed to get this whole hat knit in one sitting.
