A Big Red FO

13 Jan

At last, the weather was cool enough to wear a hat outside without dying, and GP and I were both home when the sun was out so pictures could be taken! Sorry if your eyes burn out, but red is really hard to photograph!

Pattern: Hermione’s Cable and Bobble hat by Lauren Kent, can be purchased here, or found in the book Charmed Knits.

Yarn: Plymouth Encore Worsted, in the brightest red color I have ever seen. Fantastic!

Needles: US 7 Addi Turbo 12″ circulars

Started: January 3, 2008

Finished: January 6, 2008 <—Hey, this is the first FO started and finished in 2008!

Notes: This is the second time I have made this hat, and this time it fits! It’s such an easy little knit. It would be a great project for someone wanting an introduction to cables, and for the advanced knitter it makes a great travel project or TV watching project. I believe I knit a good portion of this one at Margarita night while playing a game (which I won) and watching football. Now that’s good multi-tasking!
