Here’s the WIP I was talking about in the previous post. It is the Rochefort Chapeau by Purl Soho (you can find the pattern on Ravelry — I haven’t figured out how to do links when using my tablet because I lazy). The rounds join just to the right of the yarn tail in the second picture. It looks pretty good. I like this simple pattern, but I will not include the little tassel because it looks a bit silly.
For my next trick, I’m going to learn a different method to increase, especially when the increase round is in a different color. I generally Kfb to increase, and as you can see, it left a little white bit of stitch visible, so the blue row isn’t perfect. Oh well. C’est la vie.
The yarn I’m using, btw, is Artesano superwash merino that I picked up at I Knit in London (near Waterloo station). It’s been very nice to work with.
