Pattern: as the leaves begin to fall by Eliza Jarvi
Yarn: Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK in Pebble and green
Needles: US 6
I queued this pattern as soon as Eliza released it! I had in mind to make it out of LOFT, but as I can't decide which colors to use until I have all the colors and I wanted the hat sooner than later, I decided to pick some other yarn. We are no longer carrying Sublime yarns in our shop, so I figured I'd finally grab some and do something with it, so the stars aligned and here we are!
|Pardon my totally creepy expression.|
I modified it just a bit. I have a huge head, so I cast on 104 and increased enough to do one more repeat of the leaves. I also omitted the first few stockinette rows at cast-on because...I forgot.
In sum, Eliza, thanks for a really great hat pattern! I'm hoping we'll get a little bit more rain this summer and it wasn't all spent in April when I was trying to knit this hat specifically to wear on rainy days! I suspect it will serve me well. The yarn is so fabulous that I might just wear it all summer in the heat and humidity to feel the softness on my head. :)
I've got a lot of knitting to do this weekend! Don't you? For more FO Friday posts, visit Tami's Amis!
