We Call This ... Finally Finished!
I'm also thrilled because this counts towards STRANDED, The Colorwork Challenge KAL.
Pattern: We Call Them Pirates
Pattern Source: Hello Yarn
Yarn: KnitPicks Andean Silk (pitch & cream colorways) and Elann Sonata (color 8176)
Needles: (2) Knitpicks Classic Circular size 3 US and (2) Addi Turbo size 1 US
Notes: In the future I will knit a gauge swatch in the pattern stitch since this hat fits a small child & not a mans head as originally intended. I used the two circulars method to knit the entire hat. The yarn is soooo sooo soft and I would most definitely knit with it again, unless I find something just as nice for the price. The pattern was fun, very well written, and fairly easy to follow.
I have a question though for those of you who have knit items with linings in them. Why do you have to knit the lining last? Why couldn't I have cast-on the lining section & then knit the hat section? Anyone? Anyone? I really am looking for an honest answer here otherwise I'm going to try knitting the lining first and then if it fails miserably .. I'll know who to blame. (umm.. myself)
