It looks great on her. Fit and color are perfect for her. I did not like the sweater in the magazine photos, but you have inspired me to add it to my list.

From looking at the pattern, I would have never guessed how cool anyone would look in this hat. You look great in it and I totally want one!

I would also love to know what yarn and size needles you used. It looks like you did the moss stitch version, is that right?

Beautiful! I was also in Seattle earlier this month and picked up some "souvenirs" at Little Knits. Went to a couple of other knit stores but not Hilltop Yarns -- where is it?

To get that nice "braided" edge look, cast on 2 additional sts. If your pattern says CO 18 sts, CO 20.

On every row: slip the first st as if to purl with yarn in front. Knit the last st.

I love it and immediately checked to see if the book was in at the library. I'll be picking it up in a 1/2 hour. I wanted to make a neckwarmer for my mom and just could not decide on a pattern for my Colinette Prism. Yours is just beautiful!

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Urchin on: December 07, 2007 06:53:20 AM
Another Urchin from Fall Knitty. Loved knitting this hat! I used Colinette Prism, which is thinner than the suggested yarn. Made the medium instead of small to compensate and it fits my little head well. Knit on 10.5 needles. My sister has already requested one. Also plan on making one for my 3-year-old since she looks really  cute in mine.

I think you are correct use the extra purl sts that you did on row 1 on all the rows of the lattice cable. It would have been helpful if they put that on the same page as the cable instructions just as a reminder. If you own the book, I would pencil it in so you don't forget.

Thanks for the compliments!

They are adorable! I also made my DD legwarmers for the same reason! I thought they would also be practical when she started to crawl. (However she decided that she was not interested in crawling.)

I prefer merino over alpaca but that just me. If you don't mind working with fingering weight, Shibui sock yarn on size 4 needles makes thin, warm, soft and machine washable hats.

Also just finished a kittyville hat out of Mondial Artico (discontinued?) that I found at my LYS. Also merino and very soft.

Pattern: Groovy Sweater Dress/Twinkle's Big City Knits
Yarn: Twinkle Soft Chunky
Color: Urchin
Needles: sizes 17 and 19
Size: small

I really wanted the top "vine" to come out of one of the middle "rib" sections, but the decrease row for the ribbing was so vague I just could not make it work. In the book, the blue GSD photo shows it coming straight out of a rib and in the pink photo shows it like mine.

Next problem was on the neckline. The pattern said to turn, then bind off 2 sts, turn, bind off 2 sts (not looking at the pattern, but that's the idea). I might have done it wrong, but that bind off left me with holes. I may re-do the neckline if I can figure out what i did wrong.

I have never worn anything with bobbles, and I think I feel a little weird in it.
