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.
