1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Enid (or something like it) on: April 15, 2008 07:11:52 AM
It's great. I can imagine it would take a year, it'd probably take me about the same time. It's wonderful though.

I clicked on your blog and saw that picture of you cutting it for the zipper. So scary! Is that usually how people do zippers?

This pattern called for a steek. I don't think you have to do it that way. But it's a nice way to knit a cardigan since you are knitting in the round you don't ever have to purl. I really enjoyed this and will eventually try another similar pattern, maybe one with bigger needles!

Thanks all for your nice comments. Even though this took me over a year to make, my actual knitting time on it was just a couple months. The endless knitting St st on size 4 needles in dark brown made me a bit crazy and I put it a way for a year. It's definitely one I had to come back to but I'm sure glad I did.  Wink

Hi, I've been knitting on this sweater for over a year now. I finally picked it back up and had it finished within two weeks. It's like knitting a sweater in no time at all, except it was a really long time.

The pattern: Enid IK
The Yarn: Reynolds Whiskey
The needles: US 4 addi turbos
The mods: I changed the yoke pattern to my own ring pattern. I also added a zipper instead of a button band. More pics on my blog: http://knithole.blogspot.com

yes i had a similar question...as i am also interested in making this with the skulls. also when i made my fake isle hat it came out really pointy. yours looks nice and round. also did you make the bigger size?

I think I made the bigger size, but I used Noro silk garden so my guage was a little smaller. I also used Frog Tree Merino for the white CC.

Hope that helps.

I was wondering if you had to tweek the chart any to get it to fit?  If I counted right the skull is 17sts wide by the original is only 12.

I just took out the spaces so there is only one space in between each skull. That's it. It should work if you do that.

Long time lurker-first time poster and I couldn't resist this hat.  It's my second attempt at fair isle and kind of a variation on a theme at the top.  I loved knitting it. Very easy and super fast. Thanks for the inspiration Roe!

Photos of my hat are here

I love it! Great colors too!

Wow Landry, yours is beautiful. I'm gealous about your color choice. I'm using what I had in my stash, Watery- Rowan Felted Tweed, but seeing yours is making me wonder if I should have gone all out and got a different color.

love it!
