All done! I love quick projects.
Pattern: Gretel by Ysolda
Yarn: my handdyed, handspun merino 2ply
Needles: Denise US 5 and US 7; Brittany US 7 dpn
Started last Thursday, finished Friday, worn out and about on Sunday.
The cables are a little obscured by the variegation in the yarn, and they don’t pop as much as they would in a 3ply yarn. But you can still see them, and they’re certainly cushy!
The band does sort of threaten to fall off my head, but it seems to hold itself on pretty well, at least for now. I can always thread some elastic through there if need be, later on.
I have a very hard time with hats – but this one is perfect!
