Pat's Knitting and Quilting

November 21, 2006

Shedir was a fun and quick knit ....I couldn't stop - just wanted to keep going to see what it would look like and I love the finished product! I used Rowan Calmer, a new yarn for me, and I love the cotton softness and springiness. Shedir is one of the most comfortable hats I've made. As an additional bonus it is a hat that is noticed even by people who never notice my knitting....something about those cables and that beautiful star top. I modified the pattern minimally by eliminating one of the main pattern repeats (I only used 4 repeats) and I'm glad I did that fits perfectly.
