Finished the Coronet hat I’ve been working on and wore it the same day
Pattern: Coronet hat from Knitty
Yarn: Imperial Stock Ranch 2 ply in Canyon Shadow Blue
Needles: US8 circular, magic loop
Duration: 31st January to 9th February 2010
Ravelry project: Blue Coronet
The hat came out well, but I won’t ever use this yarn again. There were three knots in the part I used, and I had to pick bits of grass out of the yarn every few stitches, the fibre quality is very poor. I like the colouring, it feels squishy and warm to wear, but it was so annoying to work with! Picking up stitches is getting easier, I ended up with two too many but they were all evenly spaced. The cable band got compliments the first time I wore it and I like the double thickness over my ears. Perfect for the freezing weather that just came back through St Louis.
