FO – Odessa Hat
Posted by Amber on May 8, 2006
Pattern: Odessa by Grumperina
Yarn: Rowan Cashsoft Baby DK, in “Blue Boy” (809) The pattern claimed that you wouldn’t have any left overs, but I have a fair bit. I could have made the straight section a bit longer, to cover my ears (like in the picture). I knit until it was 5.5″ before starting decreases. Apparently my row gauge was off.
Needles: Two circs! Size 4 and 6.
Thoughts: A definite keeper! Very quick and easy to make (I started twice on Friday – once I didn’t count right, and then again later that evening, a very little bit of knitting Saturday night, a lot of knitting Sunday, and just the decreases on Monday). I left out the beads, but I think it would look just as cute with the beads.
