pattern:Ã‚Â Corrugated Dulann HatÃ‚Â from Mason-Dixon Knitting
yarn:Ã‚Â Cascade 220 in red and light pink
needles:Ã‚Â Clover Bamboo US7 16″ circ and US6 DPNs
started:Ã‚Â March 8thÃ‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â finished:Ã‚Â March 9th
notes:Ã‚Â Corrugated ribbing is a new technique for me, and I love it. Ã‚Â I use the pick and throwÃ‚Â method rathen thanÃ‚Â slipping the stitches and haveing to makeÃ‚Â two passesÃ‚Â for each round.Ã‚Â It went ratherÃ‚Â smoothly but myÃ‚Â picked stitches were a bit tighter than the thrown ones.Ã‚Â I knowÃ‚Â it will just take time and practice to get them more even.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Ã‚Â
I cast on the largest size, 72sts, since I was using a lighter wool than called for in the pattern and ended up with a baby/small child’s hat.Ã‚Â Next time, if I useÃ‚Â Cascade 220, I will double up the yarn for a larger size hat.
