A couple of years ago, I bought some Manos del Uruguay wool at an LYS closing sale. At the time, I was thinking of making a minisweater, but I’d since changed my mind.

I couldn’t figure out what do for awhile, but then I decided I wanted a hat. So I whipped this up at the end of last month:

None – I winged it, using mistake rib as the stitch pattern.

Manos del Uruguay worsted wool in color 04

US4 / 3.5mm Plymouth bamboo DPNs

This was a fast knit. I really like it for the most part! I’m sure this’ll pill like mad over time, and it’s a little too big, but I can live with both things. The important part is that it’s nice and cushy and warm. Not that I need “warm” right now, but it’ll come in handy at some point, right?

I think I’m going to make a matching scarf with the remaining yarn. Not sure yet, though… we’ll see.

    That hat looks great! I haven’t had trouble with Manos pilling, so you might be OK.

    Great hat! Better to be a bit big than too small.

    I think a matching scarf would be a really good idea. Then some gloves and you have a matching set!
