Knit: Scalloped Lace Hat

Squidginess, snuggliness, what's not the love?


Pattern: Scallop Lace Hat by Leah Coccari-Swift (PS. this is a Ravelry link and you will need to join Ravelry to access)

Yarn: Cleckheaton Perfect Day 8 Ply in Natural (1000) - 70% wool, 30% alpaca. Used just over 1 ball which is a wee bit annoying as I don't have quite enough left on the second ball to knit another as a gift :(

Needles: Knit Pro Symfonie Wood Interchangeable Circular Needle Tips and Cables. There is no better needle system in my mind. Just, awesome.

Lessons Learned:

  • I much prefer to follow a lace chart than try to decipher text driven directions. Does that make me a visual person?
  • Head banging against desk and repeat after me "I will count all stitches remaining in lace panels after every repeat to avoid completing a round and having to tink back to fix an error". Seriously Jillian, you have to start reading back over previous lessons learned!
Love that awesome sweater peaking out from the bottom of shot? You can check it out here.

This will be the last of the Winter Knitting projects folks... I think. In fact shortly after knitting this the weather in Sydney turned unseasonably warm, like 26 degrees celsius. Mental, I tell you, mental.
