This is really pretty!
Nice job! I was wondering about that pattern...it is combining a lot of things into a hat...knitting in the round, a lace pattern, etc.
It looks good on your head, too--you can see the pattern quite nicely! The color is gorgeous...I love orange, too!
Thanks for sharing!
lol I went to look at the pattern and found it is already in my library...guess I will move it up in the queue now that I see how lovely it is!
I know, I started it thinking 'this will be fine', got past the ribbing and saw C2B and C2F and didn't have a clue what it meant. It's for the cables and I almost gave up and put it down as I've never tried cabling before! But it's like baby step cables, only moving one stitch at a time, so I said I'd give it a shot. And yes, move it up your queue! I'm in love with this hat now
This turned out so nicely! The color is great - nice and bright and allows the beautiful lace pattern to really pop.
Thank you! Yes, I'm super pleased about that. I tried lace for the first time while knitting a shawl for my mother at Christmas and while the yarn was a lovely dark purple that changed to light purple and back again, the lace pattern got really lost as the colour was dark and the colour change distracting.
