Sorry it’s not as much as I wanted to post tonight, but the sun was shining and the mowing needed to be done.
This most recent little hat is a reprise of one I did a few years back. Here is the original:
The main yarn was Lanett Superwash, I think, and the variegated yarn was a Fleece Artist sock merino. It is an infant-sized hat, 6-9 months I would guess, probably knit on 2.25-2.50 mm needles.
Here is the new version, prompted by the nagging of my knit night group to produce the pattern. Thanks, ladies!
Again the main yarn is Lanett Superwash, actually a mint green, somewhere between the two colours above. The contrast yarn is a locally hand-dyed Briggs and Little Sport. As you can see it is a very woolen single, fulled slightly during dyeing.
I added a bit of a stranded pattern to the body of the hat and decided to do the decreases at six points instead of ten. I like the look, but it was a nuisance to work since it wouldn’t divide nicely on four dpn’s. I think I will work another one and use either four or eight decreases. Votes?
