Inga Hat


Well, I finished the hat. The pattern is by Sheila MacDonald. I was inspired to try this by Kathryn whom I 'met' over on Revelry. It is really easy to follow and takes just two skeins of yarn. I did it with some mixed flava DK weight (70/30% acrylic). Now that I know I can't screw this up, I'll try it with the 'good stuff'.

It could have been a wee bit looser.

We have alot of this kind of patterns in Norway.

Hi! I love the hat! I have tried "samples" of Intarsia. I'm scared to commit to a whole intaria project.

I have not heard of ATcards.com but will go now and have apeek.

I subscribed to your blog as well!

I love your photographing skills

I am very impressed with the hat. I don't know how to do fair isle, that is what it is, isn't it? Anyway I think it's great. Sting was great too.

Great hat! I love stranded knitting. You can make it a bit looser by wet-blocking it and letting it dry around a bowl... Not too big of a bowl, though!

Absolutely beautiful!

It looks great! Do you think it would loosen up a bit with wear?

You're very disciplined to knit a "practice" hat before knitting the "real" one -- I think I'd lose focus after the practice one.
