Surprise: A Hat!

And this hat has quite the story.

Meret Number Two
  • Pattern: Meret
  • Yarn: Rowan Pure Wool DK, 125 m per 50 gr ball. Color 010 (a lovely blue). Used about 1.5 balls. This yarn was a gift from a penpal.
  • Needles: 4.5 mm Addi Lace (120 cm), magic-looped all the way
  • Gauge: 22 st = 10 cm
  • Size: Fits my head.
  • Modifications: Added two repeats around since my gauge was small and my head seems to be big, and made it super slouchy: started on row 7 of the lace chart, finished that repeat, did 4 whole repeats, and ended on row two as instructed, then did the crown shaping lace chart.

I’m alive, and I still knit.

And I have a finished project to show it!
