I completed my third test knit a few days ago, but didn’t have the opportunity to get modeled photos until today. So, cross one WIP off the list!
Pattern: Tunbridge Malabrigo Hat (not released yet)
Yarn: Mystery yarn from a dbny grab bag. I believe it’s a worsted weight, wool/alpaca blend. It’s super soft and has a little halo to it. I used 171 yards.
Size made: Adult, slouchy version. Brim circumference is about 18-18.5″.
Techniques used: Tillybuddy’s very stretchy cast on
Many thanks to my friend Kate for her impromptu modeling skills!
This was a quick, easy, fun knit. It would be a great project for someone who’s never done cables before. I will definitely make this again! There are a few things about this pattern I particularly like. The transition from ribbing to cables is cleverly done (I won’t say how, as I believe this pattern will be offered for sale). Also, the cables go in two different directions which makes it a little interesting.
I don’t have a recipient in mind for this hat yet, but I very well might just keep it for myself. I wore it for a while this evening and it’s really comfortable. Either way, I’d definitely make it again!
