This is the first in a very long series of posts which are mopping up some un-published finished objects from the last couple of years.
Nb: Sorry about the quality of the photos – they were taken with the front camera of my phone while I was out for a walk!
Some times a pattern and a yarn just fall into place with each other! This black/variegated yarn doesn’t show off the pattern to it’s fullest degree but it was a fun, quick knit and I only had to go shopping in my stash. Win-win!
Pattern: Elven Cloche by Rosemary (Romi) Hill from The Great Oddments Knitdown eBook. One size.
Yarn and needles: Sirdar Cossack Chunky (67% Acrylic, 30% Wool, 3% Rayon) – discontinued yarn.
88.2 yards, 60 grams 0.6 skeins = 88.2 yards (80.7m) used. 4.5 mm dpns and one 6 mm long circular needle for magic loop.
Dates: 5th – 8th Feb 2014.
- No modifications at all, in the actual knitting.
- Opted not to sew up one side so I have both ears covered at the same time.
- This hat was made from the remnants of my crocheted Pixie Slippers, and I still have 20 g or so left.
