My third hat in three days… I enjoyed the making of this hat a lot, especially the creative process involved in deciding how big to make the stripes. I made this hat with 11 rows of K2P2 rib, and then rows 12-38 were sockinette with K2tog decreases after that.
However, the yarn is KnitPicks’s Wool of The Andes yarn. I think that it’s a bit lifeless, really, and not as crisp or yummo as I’d like it to be. It probably was too much of a contrast compared to that of the Isabel yarn. I would say this yarn is good for children or for felting projects. I admit though I do like that this hat took half of 3 balls of yarn, and with each ball under $2, that means this hat cost me $3! Great learning experience.
