Let me tell you, it was a looong one too! Yeah, the pattern is easy and best to not use a cable needle, but to me it just took forever to knit it. Or maybe it was because I was otherwise occupied...hmmm...anyways!
STR Heavyweight Rare Gems Colorway which as I knit it, I am thinking it used to be Little Bunnyfoo foo (pink and brown) in it's former life. I used this doubled to acheive a worsted weight. Yarn courtesy of my BMFA shopper thank you!
US 5 & 7 Circular, Magic Looped- heh, tried this on a 16" and no way I could even knit anything other than rib with this short of a cord. So ML it was.
Cast on: August 8, frogged and re-cast on August 9
Finished: August 18
The first time I knit it using recommended US 6 then 8, was way too big. Swatch a hat, no way, it was easier to frog and start again!
Close up of the yarn. See the pinks and browns peeking out...love it!
Not too bad of a back headshot! Good thing DD showed up, um as I had already taken like 10 shots trying to achieve this!
It is a great pattern, I love the decreases too. It can get confusing on 2 rows of the repeats where you move the marker, but I read up on it before I started. Not sure if I'll ever knit another one anytime soon though. Each row seemed to go on and on...Oh and the yarn doubled, worked great, but this hat sure is heavy and I bet will be warm! You'll see it again soon ;)
