Even though I have two sweaters in progress I'm tempted, if I find good yarn for it I think maybe this one:

I don't think I have anything in the stash that would be suitable though.

I've had this skein of variegated/self striping blue yarn kicking around since I bought it for another hat pattern and didn't like how it pooled. So I figured what the heck, I'd try it.



I'm not sure I like the way it's pooling. I love the stitch pattern and I really like how it's fitting so far. My guess for the cast on number was pretty good.  Grin

At this point I just keep knitting while I decide if a slow spiral of colors "works" or not. This photo was taken at night in front of my PC, the color is pretty accurate though so you can see how the stitch pattern looks pretty subtle. I really should decide if I like it or not. I foresee it sitting around finished but for cutting the yarn while I try to decide!  Roll Eyes

Thanks. Smiley

I did the ribbing on DPNs, size 5 (US), but there were too many stitches to work the body on a set of 4 7" DPNs (it was nerve wracking with the ribbing as it was). I had to work it on two circulars for a few repeats until I got far enough from the ribbing for it to stretch enough for it to work on one. I have a big head so even though this is a 29" circ it's working. I'll probably have to transition to 2 circs before I can go to DPNs on the decreases though.

how is everyone else doing on this?
i've been super busy, so im only on like, the 3rd row. (lame, i know) and i dropped my stitch marker and didnt realize it so idont really know where the row ends (yikes) so im just going to wing it.
im not even following a pattern. im just making it up as i go along.

quick question: im using size 6 circs with worsted weight (carons simply soft). if i cast on 100 stitches, would that be a good size for a medium-large adult head? because i just guesstimated.

I finished just before I left for vacation, and now that I've recovered from the cold I picked up on the way home (yay for air travel Tongue ) I'll try to get a picture.

Well I used 120 on 5s for my 24" head and it's a bit loose, wearable but the weight of the hat makes it want to slip around a bit. On my next one I'm thinking I'll do 108 or so.

Ok, so I made the big blue beret. Made it with 7mm needles for the ribbing and 9mm for the rest in some random mohair blend. ^^ I LOVE it.
