Now for a proper Finished Object blog post for my new hat. I really love it!
DB took photos this morning, outside when we had a bit of sunshine. The color is captured very well here.
The pattern is Rosebud by Jared Flood. The yarn is Madelinetosh Chunky in color Midnight in Manhattan. I only had one skein and wasn’t sure it would be enough to make a hat. The skein weighed 114g to start with and I have 10g left.
I used the size needles required in the pattern (8US) but I only cast on 80 stitches instead of 84. Everything else I made according to the pattern, for the small size with only 2 repeats of the cable pattern.
It fits a little bit loose on my peanut head, but I like that. Hats that are too tight give me a headache. This is a super quick knit and I highly recommend it for yourself or as a gift. I made it as part of the Madelinetosh Lovers Group SAL (Stitch-a-Long) on Ravelry. But I would have made it in any case. And I’m going to wear it a lot in this cold winter weather!
