Life is good and feeling every bit of fall. ♥
Enjoying the shifting light in the studio.
..but I’m super annoyed with these f’ing forever crunchy pears.
I’m a year round maker, but knitting in the fall is always extra cozy.
The Öljett hat had me at the decreases and because of that I decided to use a single strand of worsted weight tweed to keep them the focus. (The pattern suggests using two colors of fingering weight held double for a marled look.)
A few other things to remember for the next one:
Other than the yarn, I followed the pattern exact.
I didn’t need to block it at all.
Next time I may use a tubular cast on, it’s not loose but not as stretchy good as it could be.
It has a bit of slouch, could easily take an 1”-2” off the body section for a closer fit.
Top loop is crocheted and added afterwards. Next time work icord over 3sts before closing, that way it’s all attached.
