Tychus hat and new project February 4, 2006Posted by merp in FOs, Knitting.
So here’s Dad’s birthday present, ready to go:
The pattern for the hat was “Tychus” from Knitty. But I used only a single strand of yarn instead of double as the pattern calls for, because I couldn’t see anyone in Seattle wearing a hat that warm. Which meant a great deal of fussing and redoing to get the size right. I think I cast on about 42 stitches and the shortest short row was 22 st. And I made a scarf to go with it (48 inches long, circular needles, garter stitch). The yarn was Andean Silk from knitpicks–so-o-o nice to knit with.
