Notes

Bought the pattern for the chart. This will be a gift for my church pastor who has a passion for cycling. He is training for a AIDS/LifeCycle 7-day Marathon.

Big thank you to my friend, Richard Settle, for the photo of Rev Dave wearing the hat.

MODS:
CO indicated stitches in the pattern
1.5 inches of K2P2 rib
Switched to K
K 5 rows black
K 3 rows rainbow before starting chart
Chart done with cyclist in black & rainbow background.
K 3 rows rainbow after working chart
K 5 rows black
Doing my own method for decreases

Rainbow yarn added so that it can be interpreted two ways:
1: LGBT rainbow flag
2: road, sidewalk, grass, river, mountain, sunset/sunrise

Notes for next time:
Can come down one more needle size to tighten up stitches & reduce width.
Can shorten by 8-10 rows to decrease height)
