Pattern: Rib and Cable Beanie from Cleckheaton Book 969
Needles: 6mm dpns
Yarn: Abuelita Merino Worsted, about 100 metres
This beanie has been waiting to be knit up for quite a while. I ordered some yarns from Zigo Zago online store last wek and this beautiful grass green colorway was perfect for this hat. I have to say though it was not thick enough for the pattern as it used 7mm needles, so I thought I would do it on 6mm needles and it turned out to be a perfect fit for Isabelle. I think it makes her green eyes light up so nicely. Wish it had been big enough for me but hats dont really suit me at all.
On another note ... guess whose brain finally worked out Lucy's tutorial for the ripple blanket! I did try this pattern last year but just couldnt get the decreases or increases right for some reason. Last night whilst knitting on another project I thought I would try again today to do some practice. It worked out nicely although the first 2 decreases dont look that great in the blue color. I will now be working out how large to make my blanket, probably single bed size and all my colors from my stash and will be crocheting hopefully quite a bit at night time to get some progress going (and so I dont forget how to).
