A long time ago, in a season far far away, I showed you this:
My first ever MMMmmmmalabrigo! I promised you I’d show you what I made of it when the time was right. Well, that time has finally come!
Behold the Squiggles!
Something a little artsy:
And a matching cowl:
Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted in Molly (pink shade) & Saphire Green; Cowl: approximately 0.4 hanks Molly; Hat: approximately 0.4 hanks Molly for band and 0.5 hanks Saphire Green for crown.
Needles: Cowl: Size 8 bamboo straights; Hat: Size 8 bamboo straights for band, size 7 – 16″ addi turbos for crown, & size 7 bamboo dpn’s for closing.
Mods: None. That’s a big no no on test knits!
New Techniques: Nope.
Time Lapse: Cowl: October 10, 2008 – October 13, 2008; Hat: October 19, 2008 – October 23, 2008
Comments: Love love love these patterns! I’m calling it my Jolly Rancher hat because the colors are so bright & juicy. My first time using Malabrigo and I can see now what the fuss is all about. The pattern was easy to follow and I adore how the hat fits. Don’t be discouraged if it looks smallish before you block it. It does stretch and it will fit great. As for the cowl, I love how it fits your neck just right with a dip below the chin. Be very careful to match your row gauge perfectly, or it might be a bit snug. I know my row gauge drifted a bit from my swatching to my actual project. Both winners! Go check them out & tell rchrispy I sent you ;)
And, as always, an outtake!
