Two ladies and a whole lotta wool
So, first knitting project of the “season” is done. I’ve completed a hat for my friend Fazz, knitted with beautiful Orkney Angora which I purchased from Tangled Yarn (love that site).
A couple of twists on the pattern from before; first one was Fazz wanted two colours, so this version is striped, second one was the addition of a pom pom (again, on request of the client), and third I made the overall hat slightly shorter. This last one I opted to do as the wool stretches, and I felt the design could loose a couple of cms. This was also after feedback from others who I’d knitted these hats for.
Here is the hat in pictures:
Really happy with how this slightly adapted pattern worked out, and I personally love the pom pom (though it might not be to everyone’s taste). It is super fun making a pom pom – will do a how to post on that soon.
