Well here's my first FO of the year.And its probably as much a surprise for you as it was for me.
this link at just the right time. I was home, it was snowing, and I had no desire to work on any of my current WIPs.
Ravelry, but you can probably find a better one there.
There's nothing really wrong with how this pattern is written, but I found it a little on the small size. While the hat is knit in worsted, the designer recommends a 3.75 mm needle. So either she has a really loose gauge, or she just likes really tight knitting. I went up to a 4.5mm and it still turned out a little small. It could easily be remedied by adding in another owl repeat, but if you're not the type to want to wing an upsize, try another pattern (there are several similar ones available)
As we speak, this little hat is winging it's way to the inspiring Facebook friend. She just recently moved to Sudbury, ON from California* so she's going to need it.
Now.. lets get back to that cardigan
*She's originally from Canada, so it's not as much of a shock as it could be. But still you'd get use to that California sunshine...
