80% bamboo, 20% wool (more of the Sidar Flirt on sale at 1/4 price)...

I love working this stuff, it's such a stunningly beautiful, comfortable, soft yarn that's so easy to work. I love this pattern too. it's actually a wide scarf pattern from Ravelry, but I stopped at row 35 ish I think, then put in some ribbing. I sewed it along the wiggly seams too.

it's the wavy lace wrap by deborah newton.

I've also narrowed the pattern and begun making a scarf to match.

You are very cute.
Oh yeah, the hat is nice too. I can't alter patterns like that I so applaud your skill. Looks comfy and professional.

*blushes* thanks.

the reduction of te width of the pattern only took me working out how many stitches there are to eah pattern repeat, doing some maths, trying it out, realising I'd done the maths wrong and going from there lol.

That is such a pretty pattern, you did a great job. I made a cowl from bamboo one time and it was so nice and soft! I bet this hat is delightful to wear.

I love the feeling of bamboo! With the bamboo and wool, you have quite a nice combination! Beautiful hat, too!
