Lucky Tweedy 7

Gosh after almost 5 months! Methinks a few other projects pushed this one to the back of the line. It wasn't fair, it was calling my name.....finish me....finish me. So, I'm on the knit a WIP, can start another WIP...wait a minute..that may be a bad idea...

Side view
Lucky Tweedy 7 by Weezalana
Paton's Classic Merino Wool Tweeds-Tweed Noir or Black Tweed
US 7 Knitpicks options; same size in Clover short bamboo dpn needles
Less than 1/2 a skein.
Mods: I didn't want the ribbing to fold over, looks like yuk on me. But I did want more of a wider ribbing section than the pattern, so, voila knit 14 rows and its fine.
My Hat Model
I love this pattern! So easy to follow! I love cables anyways and the decreases in the crown section totally rock!

Gotta love those green eyes! Doesn't she have gorgeous eyes! Today, there were green, sometimes they are hazel. She's a great hat model!

It does seem a bit pointy at the end, but I'll probably block it next fall before I wear it. Now to finish the other Tweedy partner that goes with it

I love the hat, and yes, the model is gorgeous! ;-)

My son also has hazel eyes which go from grey to green, depending on what he's wearing and if it's sunny or cloudy when he's outside. I love it!
