I've finished knitting the hat, using the magic loop method. It's based on the Wavy Gravy Hat by Elizabeth McNamee, but I've taken liberties with the pattern. I cast on more stitches than the pattern stipulated, to compensate for using a thinner yarn. But, in my usual fashion, I overdid it and had too many stitches. I contemplated starting again, but instead reduced the number of stitches after a few repeats, which has given a flower petal effect. Accidental, but pleasing.

Oh, I LOVE what you have done with this! Wavy Gravy hat pattern is one of my favorite knitting patterns. I even used it to knit a Christmas Pudding Hat, but alas, it was too small for either me or my son. So it was donated to charity.ReplyDelete
YOUR hat is magnificent!
