Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Varick Street Hat Link to website or photo www.craftsy.com/workshop/Kirsten-Kapur-Varick-Street-Hat/48 What are you most proud of? My first major cable project What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would make this again, but I would definitely do it bottom up, instead of top down. I skipped two rows in the middle of the cable to try and save yarn but I still ran out of yarn in the middle of the bind off. Thank gawd my gf and I were knitting it together and she gave me her leftover bit so I could finish my bind off. I must have a tiny head; even with two less rows its still too long on my head, going down to my eyebrows. Next time I will subtract at least 4 rows in the middle for a better fit. This is my first time working with any of the Spud & Chloe yarns and I have to say I really dont like Outer; its squishy soft but omg it started to pill and develop a halo as I was knitting. When I was done and wove in my ends I had to go around the hat and trim the pills off of it. I could not for the life of me do the loop method cast on in the pattern so I just did a regular cast on. Ordered the craftsy knit along kit.
