Obligatory stitch shot!
Pattern: December Lights Tam, Holiday 2007, IK
Yarn: Debbie Bliss baby cashmerino - 8 colors. yes, 8.
Needles: Addi Turbos size 3 and Yarn Pirate size 2 - both circs. I magic looped the hat as it decreased.
Gauge: 24 st = 4in (called for was 26 = 4in). Now that gauge is in the blocked top section, there is a portion between that and the ribbing that is 28/4 inches - so it varies. Who cares, it works and it is cute!
Started: Saturday, Nov 17
Finished: Friday, Nov 23
Mods: Oh - and there was a little issue with the number of stitches you end with at the end of the damn chart. There was a LOT of cussing and searching on the interwebs and NO ONE mentioned it anywhere. Cristi was sure I was crazy, though I SWEAR I was not crazy. To get to 5 I S1, K2tog, PSSO, k1 and repeated around somehow - I wanted to make sure the decrease lines stayed all nice and neat and happy. And they did!
Notes: I have a TON of yarn left. This was a quick knit and I really enjoyed it! The fair isle was really fun! This is my first fair isle project since I took that class with Jane Prater at Charlotte Yarn alllll those months ago!
We're so cool.
