Gretel in action


Great pattern, Ysolda.

Details
Yarn: Fleece Artist Kid Silk 2-Ply. It has several subtle colors: off white, gold, blue, green. Like something that is iridescent.
Needles: 4 mm for ribbing and 4.5 mm for hat body. I used magic loop method until the very last few rows when I switched to dpns.
Pattern: There are 3 sizes in the pattern, and I did the "regular" size.

I learned the st. st. tubular caston for this hat and I really like it. I hope to eventually learn the other tubular castons. I plan to make matching fingerless mittens or maybe Chevalier mittens.

Your hat is soooo pretty! I'll have to mark this pattern as a "to do".

Love the pic of the "three dogs" :)

Beautiful hat/beret. Today at the yarnshop, were talking about tubulair cast on.

I love hearing and learning about new techniques.

Thanks!
