I actually finished on Monday and have been enjoying it for the past few days of inclement weather. This was my first hat and my first attempt at stranded knitting. I think it came out pretty good and it fits me perfectly! I do wish I’d made the lining a little longer so that it wouldn’t sit on my forehead. I used Jo Sharp, 100% wool, DK weight, in Scarlet and Owl on US 5s and lined it with Plymouth Wildflower DK cotton and acrylic blend in black on US 3s.
I ran into problems when I pulled out the provisional CO and added my lining yarn. I did it on the WS which created a
stupid, pain in the backside lovely purl ridge that, after an inch or so of lining was completed, I decided would create a problem in the way the hat lays so I had to rip it out and start the lining over. But I’m glad I did.
Now I’m ready for another. I’m thinking blue on brown.
