Thérèse's knitting



Designer: Jared Flood
Pattern source: Interweave Knits Holiday 2007
Yarn:  Jo Sharp Silkroad Aran Tweed, 411 Granary (wool/silk/cashmere)
Completed: November 2007

Quick, handsome, fun to knit. I did 4 1/2 vertical pattern repeats instead of the 4 or 5 called for; used 46 grams of yarn--under 100 yards, and it's plenty big. 4 repeats would have been fine. On one row out of four, you have to twist every stitch--a pain with a cable needle, but no problem if you're comfortable doing without. I love this yarn for a hat--it's soft, has that lovely slight scrunchiness from the silk, and is not too warm for California.
