  1. Sometimes you just have to punish a misbehaving project! Love this hat, both the yarn and the pattern.

    • It was a fit/ease issue with the sweater. I’ve lost almost 20lbs over the last couple months and I’m having to re-learn how garments fit my body. Thankfully, I set it aside and tried it back on at home & after adding a bit of length I opted to keep it as is. It’s very relaxed now, but I’m sure I’ll wear it a lot.

      The hat started very slow, but then flew. All it needs is the pom-pom on the top now!

      • Congrats on the weight loss! I think you’ll be happy not having redone it. You spend a lot of time in either comfy (knitting at home while teaching the kids) or active (hiking around out of doors) that a piece that’s less fitting ought to be a great choice. Besides, then it’s perfect for layering too!

      • Thank you! I really have to thank my hubby — he’s the one who told me to wait and take another look at home. His argument was the same — I’m very much a relaxed dresser! Although, I’m not sure how much I’ll layer as it’s a rather warm sweater!

    • It’s a Fisherman’s Rib that uses knit 1 below (k1b) and purl 1 below (p1b) which knits up almost like brioche. Very simple once you get rolling — I’d definitely recommend trying this pattern to get a feel for it.
