I spent 14 hours in the car last weekend…traveling to the first round of state soccer playoffs. So, I had plenty of time to knit.
For this project, I used Cascade Cash Vero, colorway #017. I don’t know if you remember, but I purchased it at Gail Knits during my trip to Las Vegas.
Here’s what I made out of it…
Now, I have to say that the yarn is ultra soft. It’s 55% Merino, 12% Cashmere, and 33% Acrylic. It is ultra warm too. I knit it on the soccer fields…in 80 degree weather. Yeah, I think I’ll knit with sock yarn during the next round of playoffs (my daughter’s team made it through to the round of 16 :cheering:).
As far as the pattern, it was easy, but I think there were mistakes in it. Some of the cables seemed off. I frogged about half of it thinking I had messed up. The only thing I had messed up was not switching to a larger needle after the ribbing. I had done the pattern correctly, but it just seems off to me still. I had no idea how to make adjustments, so I just went with it. Oh well. I figure that non-knitters won’t know the difference.
I haven’t made many hats, so I found the decreasing at the top just fascinating. The spiral on the top is so pretty! Call me silly, but I find joy in simple things.
Anyhow, thanks for looking!
