Today I do have an FO but it's from a few weeks ago. I've been a bit lax on proper updates but with the holidays happening, things just got in the way and there just aren't enough hours in the day.
But, we're back and I need to do an FO Friday :)
Pattern: Trusty Hat by Danielle Morgan
Time Frame: started December 16, 2016; finished December 23, 2016
Yarn: Cascade 220 #7814 Light Green (less than a full skein but I've not figured actual yardage yet)
Needles: US #4 (3.5 mm) & US #6 (4 mm) 16" circulars and US #6 (4 mm) DPNs
Modification(s): As this was a test knit, there were no modifications but I did catch some issues in the original pattern (which have been addressed/fixed).
Thoughts: This was a lovely hat to test and it works well because it's reversible. I tested the large size, which does fit me perfectly but Little Man was my model. It's a little slouchy on him, which is how he likes things anyway. I liked this hat so much that I'm knitting another one (but in a DK weight with more stitches - so I'm putzing with the pattern to suit my needs). My only drawback is that I have to use the cable needle on every other round, almost all rounds, which just makes the hat lovely but I hate dealing with the cable needle (I've tried cables without the needle and I drop stitches and that sucks so I just suck it up and use the cable needle). It was a fairly quick knit, as well. I knit it in about a week. The second one is taking me longer but I've not been working on it as often. I tend to like Danielle's patterns (even though I think this is the first of hers I've actually knit). So, you know, go knit it :)
See, the reverse side is just as lovely.
