i love it!

check out this wonderful hat blog

pattern: here
yarn: two strands of sandnes alpakka
needles: 4 mm and 5 mm

i changed the pattern from a cloche shape to a shorter regular hat. instead of the 7 inches of braid 4, i did 6 inces, and i changed braid 3 to have 3 rows between the twisting rows and braid 2 to have 2. i did the eyelet round without eyelets and instead did the increases by picking up yarn from the last row and twisting it.

i’ve used the hat lots and love it, it’s very warm – and i would like to knit another…
