Did anyone spot the (deliberate – ahem!) mistake in my last post?? I called it FO Friday, but it was actually Thursday. I genuinely thought it was Friday that day!
Well I’ve double checked and today is most definitely Sunday, and I give you the first of my Star Crossed Slouchy Berets.
This is the first of two which are going as Christmas presents to two teenage sisters. The first has red hair so I chose this SMC Silk Wool in pine green, and the second is blonde so I’m thinking a nice Royal or pale blue? What do you think? If you have any suggestions for other colours leave me a comment, I love getting them.
This is a very slouchy hat, knitted on 6mm and 8mm needles. I think this size is ok for the older sister but I might go down to 5mm and 7mm needles for the younger one. It took me only two days and just over 1 ball of the Silk Wool (53g) for this hat, I wonder if the smaller needles would mean I would only need one ball for the other?
