I must be in the mood for spring colors.
Bright cheery yellow and white for this hat.
The Butterfly Hat
It's a free pattern on the website, but if you are on Ravelry, you can download the free PDF file.
I used odds and ends of worsted wt yarn and only cast on 80 sts with size 6 and 8 needles.
And don't you just love the way the top decreases work out?
I'd like to make another one in some bright varigated yarn.
More Spring Colors
Pink and white wristers.
I am experimenting with my Sideways Mitten pattern and this is my first prototype.
Joan asked me if I short rowed the cuff. Yes I do as you can see the tiny little holes and also by the color changes.
But I was thinking of trying out another way - mabye just knit a garter stitch rectangle (no short rows for the cuffs ) then work the thumb part, then the next garter stitch rectangle.j
OR - I could just knit a big garter stitch rectangle and then add on the short row thumb part at the end.
I have too many ideas just running around in my head!
And I dared to order this pattern because I just HAD to knit one!
