That Subway Knitter, she's full of secrets. You all know about the Wavy Cables Scarf.
What you didn't know is that all along, despite passing it off as a knit for myself, it was really a gift. Hee, hee.
And, there were a couple of things that happened decidedly off-blog the past several weeks.
First, we have this:
Or, would you prefer it in red?
And, which snowflake is your favorite? No two are alike, you know. I had a request in for a new hat, and it was the perfect opportunity to try out my newly honed double-knitting skills. I took Alison's Doubleknitski Hat pattern, and adjusted it for my gauge. Then, just to make things more interesting, I decided to add some snowflakes. To make things really interesting, I designed five different snowflake charts to be spaced evenly around the hat. I'm not a huge fan of Fair Isle knitting, but I could really get into colorwork in double knitting.
Using some yarn leftover from the scarf, I made this:
I modified Nik's pattern with the Wavy Cables pattern. And, just so the hat and scarf weren't too matchy-matchy I used a six-stitch cable on the hat, instead of simply copying the four-stitch one used on the scarf. I whipped this up in about a day, and I completely fudged the crown decreases.
Stay tuned for details about both hats.
