I just knocked another one of these out in about 2 hours of watching tv last night.  This time I used the 80 cast on, for my 12 year old niece.  It looks tiny, but hopefully it will fit her okay.  Anyone tried making one for a kid yet?

I *just* cast on to start one for my 12yo.  I'm using sport-weight yarn this time, so I dunno if it'll work.

I used up some yarn that I had spun and died but ended up needing to make them a web bit smaller.
The darker green is done with the rib where you purl in to the previous row. I know it has a name but I can't remember it.

Brioche, shaker, fisherman's rib? Did you do the short rows, or just the rib?

sue

Fishermans rib, I new it was somthing like that but I could not remember.
I did six repeats of the short rows that you can't see in the picture.

I made this about a week ago.  I cast on only 80 sts and used Plymouth's (?) Paris Rainbow. 


I don't think it's actually a striping yarn, but I love how the colors landed.  It's a lot brighter in person.

Okay, here's mine.  Size 8 needles, Red Heart Super Saver Gemstone, 120 CO:

From the back.  Mine ended up a bit too large for my head, so I sewed two buttons onto the back for a more reinforced closure and further in from the end than suggested in the pattern for a tighter fit.


Laid out flat.  Try and overlook my crappy cast-on row and the fact that I made my BO so tight it made one end pointy LOL


And folded up.   Smiley

Here's mine.  I did the full pattern in Moda Dea's Cheerio (lovely yarn that was gifted to me for Christmas)- which matched the gauge.  It took me a while, and I discovered how much I suck at ribbing with small yarn, but I finished it.  I'm not a button girl, so I attatched the ends together, so no open & flat shot.

All folded up it looks like this:

Very pretty, Cherith!  I *heart* the yarn you chose to make yours.  Very Winter Wonderland.   Smiley

Thanks!  I'm wishing a little I hadn't cut off all my hair so recently.  It'd be nicer to have long hair for this...  *grin*
