I've finished the neck edge of the sweater
—and the matching hat.
It puffs up a bit at the center.--my first reaction was to frog and re-knit the last few rows.. but—I came to like it. It gives the hat a bit of personality.
The swirl design on the crown is same basic design as the design on the sweater yoke.
I still have a full skein of the Lion Brand Wool, and half a skein of the Paton's Classic Merino—so there might be a Part 3—I just haven't decided it it will be a swirl, or just the same yarn.
But before I even start—I need to finish some baby booties.. Kafia, the proprietor of Communitea, and her hubby had a baby boy last week. I made a hat months ago.. and now will knit up some booties to match.
The LICKnits group I belong to meets every week at Communitea.
