Completed Project: Heathered Fetching Hat

Cast On:
November 27, 2007

Bind Off:
November 30, 2007

Moda Dea Bamboo Wool in Heather Gray

US size 8 circulars and double-pointed needles

I had a good amount of this yarn left over {145 yd per ball}

I decided to make a K4,P1 rib edging and added two more cable twist near the top of the hat before decreasing.

Enjoyment Factor: 8

Good Things:
The pattern was simple, the colors in the yarn are lovely and super soft.

Bad Things:
This pattern is only written for a baby. I had originally made it for my youngest son CTB, but came out a little small. So, Baby Boykin will get the honor of having yet another hat by mommy!

Ugly Things:
I can't really say anything ugly about the pattern. The next time I make this hat, I will cast on more stitches to fit an adult head!

I am working on a hat I've designed for the Snookums with the Moda Dea Bamboo Wool. It iw very soft. Which will be good for his bald head.
