A while back I posted about the Twig Cowl I started making. I finished the cabled outside not long after I posted, but had difficulties making myself finish the fuzzy inside. Why? Bloody eyelash yarn. Softest man made yarn I have ever fondled, most difficult to work with. Totally worth it though. I though I wouldn’t be able to wear it until next winter, but Montana March is coming in like a lion this year. Oh darn. 😉
So, a while back I made a rainbow scarf for my friend, Jenn. I have finally gotten around to making her a rainbow hat, using a similar lacey eyelet pattern to what I used with her scarf.
The pattern I used is Hedgehog Fiber’s Jana’s Hat. Now, this obviously isn’t Hedgehog, but the weight of the rainbow yarn is close, the black yarn is a little heavier.
As I have been a cabling fool this year, I decided to try out the owl hat.
Made with Simply Worsted, grey with a strand of glitter running through.
This is also my first pompom.
I decided that since I have a hat, I needed a cowl to match it. (I wear it too often to not, you know?)
Technically, I have . . .ahem, had . . . a cowl with this yarn. However, it was about 5 skeins of crochet super bulky yarn and I ended up frogging it, as who wants that much weight around their neck and shoulders? Well, if you do, cool, but I sure don’t. Part of the aforementioned cowl was turned in to this one. The rest I think will be mittens. To find the Grace Hat, please go here.
16″ 8mm circulars
Roughly One skein of Sutton (in West End) –
OR any Super Bulky (6), about 68 yds
I cast on 72. p2, k4 all around for 4-5 rows, and then p2, c4 one row. Repeat until
desired length, bind off.
I started Twig Cowl by Tiny Owl Knits this last Saturday. Yarn Scout has had it on display for over a year, . . and I have had the yarn to do it for just as long. As I now mostly get cabling, I decided to give it a go. Mind you, I tried to use the yarn for some crochet hood project . . . . needless to say, it got frogged.
I fucking love it! I have to stop every few rows and squish it. Above I am out for coffee with Stacy, who is knitting a bit for her husband out of the bison and bamboo she spun up.
This weekend we went up to visit my parents outside of Great Falls, and on the way up I started Grace Hat by Brome Fields. This is my first time cabling – right outside of Ulm too.
And I frogged it. Mind you, it is only because the hat ended up being too small. So I have re-started it, and am almost done. For a 24″ head? Add in two more cable sets, at 6 stitches each, 12 stitches.
I learned a thing!
