For the crafty paleontologist


That's right, its a trilobite hat! I have no idea how to follow a knitting pattern, but my friend Sarah who is a kitting wizard sent me this link. She is going to make a hat for John and I so I will have to post the pictures once she is finished. Hopefully one of you are talented in this realm, or know someone who is. Enjoy!

Very cool hat, I'll have to pass this along to the gang of folks at the University of Kansas Natural History Museum that are avid knitters.
Another cool design I just saw recently is this ribcage backpack:

A belated thanks for this post. It took until the winter, but I'm now wearing a knit cap adorned with trilobites. Even made it the subject of a post on my blog, Fossils and Other Living Things (http://fossilsandotherlivingthings.blogspot.com/2010/01/trilobites-in-sheeps-wool.html).

Hi Tony - Great post!! I am glad you got the hat. John and I both got one before Christmas also - a friend from high school made ours. Thanks for the heads up!
