Here’s the last of the holiday things I knitted up.
Happy sigh…I know. This was one of those things you finish and just can’t believe you actually made it.
I’m no great shakes at colorwork. (Actually, I think I might have to reassess that assumption, because my last couple of colorwork projects have turned out perfectly.) I can’t carry yarn in two hands, so I have a complicated one-handed method, and my gauge is always waaaay tighter than it’s meant to be.
For that reason, even though I read through lots of ravelers’ comments about the hat coming out big, I went with the same needle size called for in the pattern.
Here you can see the ribbing at the bottom. This is the only part that really came out a little on the large side, but as it’s for my mom, and she wouldn’t want anything squeezing and mussing her hair, I think that’s perfect.
Pattern is Gramma K’s Fair Isle Tam by Kathleen Taylor. Yarns were Plucky Primo Worsted in Brown Heavy Haze with my own Handspun Superwash BFL, which came from 4 ounces of Two If By Hand fiber in the colorway Capitol with Pink.
Happy Knitting, Friends!
