Just finished these for my friend George's birthday. (The heart pillow I posted previously is actually for a grad present...I don't know why I posted it wrong. :oops: )
Yarn: Plymouth Encore Mega Colorspun #7123 ( I this yarn and color. I almost don't want to give it to her it's so nice! )
Pattern: I don't know if it's an actual pattern or if it's been posted by someone else. I started off going to do a scrunchable scarf, but I didn't like that the stitches came out differently. So, I ditched one of the stitches and did this:
Cast on 20 stitches.
Row 1: Knit and Purl across entire row.
Row 2: Knit across entire row.
Worked those two rows until I got about 60 inches. Used 3 balls of the yarn and one for the hat.
I did about an inch of 1x1 ribbing on the hat. On the smooth side, you can hardly tell, and on the bumpy side it's only a little more noticeable. Oh well.
The really neat thing is that I tried to hide the yarn joins and seams in the hat so that they are reversible. And it came out pretty well. :happydance:
One side is all bumpy feeling, and the other is nice and smooth. I like the look of both. The scarf has fringes too, but the pic I took of them was all blurry.
Anyway, enough with the blathering, here's the pics! (Be warned, there's a few.)
Close up of both sides:
