Le Slouch Off the Needles

Posted by allie on March 1, 2007

I really wanted to finish this hat by last night and I did!!! During Lost I wove in yarn tails (something I hate!!!)
Anyway, Le Slouch is done and I wore it today in the nasty rain. But my hair certainly stayed dry!

Pattern: Le Slouch(pdf) by Wendy Bernard (one of my fav. designers)
Cast-on: February 26, 2007/ Finished: February 28, 2007
Yarn: Plymouth Yarn Jean Née (50 cotton/50 acrylic) in a color I can’t quite define (brown, gray, hints of mauve)-it’s color 5, if you’re curious. I used a little over one skein. This yarn is SO soft, I can’t stop stroking it! And that sheen… I plan to use it for a sweater one of these days- my new LYS has LOTS in stock!!!
Needles: Clover Takumi dpns 8’s and 9’s
Mods: Well, it wasn’t on purpose, but when it came time to pull the yarn through the rem 6 sts, I had 10 and was too lazy to do anything about it. It looks fine, so I’m not going to worry about those 4 extra sts.

    You are traveling through a dimension…Not only of sight & sound, but of mind. Your next stop the Twilight Zone…(cue music)
    Or, in Our case….The Knit-a-like Zone..
