Another weekend with deadlines looming, what else to do but knit!
Thorpe Hat by Kirsten Kapur
Pattern source: Thorpe hat(link to pdf)
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Maya
Needle: 5.00mm Addi Turbos
This hat is amazing!! It took me only a whole Sunday to knit. Mind you my day started way past noon. The pattern called for Dpns to begin with, but they are out of my league, so I used a very long(100cm) circular to do magic loop instead. Also, since I'm using a lighter weight yarn, I increased up to 88 stitches to get to my size. The contrasting yarn for the crochet edging I used was even lighter, so I did Double crochet instead of Half double crochet called for.
The yarn was a delight to work with, and the colour works perfectly for Project Spectrum. Orange, red and pink? Yes, please.
Can you tell yet that I love it so? I'm digging the stash to make some more of this baby!
