Pattern: Silk Garden Beanie
Started: November 26, 2009
Finished: December 17, 2009
Yarn: less than 2 skeins of Knit Picks Swish Worsted (110 yards yds per 50g ball; 100% Superwash Merino Wool) in Black
Gauge & Needles: 4 sts/inch (with yarn held double) on US #9 dpns
Modifications: Knit with two strands of yarn as one which led to different gauge/stitch count than pattern. I was otherwise true to the pattern.
I knitted up a plain black hat around this time in 2005 and wore the poor thing until the end of last season. I just loved it--it didn't smoosh my hair and was really warm. I tried to recreate it this year and think I succeeded. I love this hat!
Here's my old post. (Hey, look, "just in time for snow" again!)
