I talked about the Minno Hat in a blog the other week and it is now done! I am so happy with it. It's squishy and very warm.
The pattern is very clear and super easy to follow, well worth the $5.
The stranded colourwork is very simple and not too many ends to weave in although it looks messy.
See, all the ends are weaved in, nice & tidy!
Here are some stats:
Yarn: Luxury 8 ply by Bendigo Woollen Mills
Colourway from the bottom up: Slate (0307), Tangerine (0347), Koala (0353), Aquarium (0324), Baby Pink (0318), Baby Mint (0317)
Needles: Knit Picks 80cm circular 3.5mm & 4mm
Modifications... yes I did that. It appears that I have a big head! just around not the height. I knitted the large size but started decreasing early, after 7th round from the last row of colourwork. Then I worked 8 pairs of decrease every other round before decrease every round.
It's slightly sloughy but I like how it sits on my head.
How about the details!
So I am going to be warm this winter :)
Stitch with love...
