Ravellenic Finish #2


So this project was much more successful than my first Ravellenic Games finished project!! More Madelinetosh Tosh Chunky, which I'd been hoarding in my stash, just waiting to knit up. Knitting this yarn just makes me want to buy more of it. The colors are stunning, the yarn has a gorgeous shine to it (even though it's 100% merino, with no silk or anything in it), and it's so soft and squishy. I would sooo make a sweater with this if it weren't so cost-prohibitive! I'm equally in love with this hat pattern. The lace is easy and quickly memorized, and the hat ends up being long enough to fully cover your ears. This hat is destined to be a birthday present for my sister, but I am sooo making a second one for myself!

Pattern: Lowbrow Hat (link to my Ravelry project page)
Yarn: Madelinetosh Tosh Chunky (colorway: Lepidoptra, 1 skein = 165 yards)
Needles: Size 5 and Size 7 Knit Picks Harmony interchangeables
Modifications: None!
