I’m officially ready for anything this winter. How I longed for Woolly Mammoth, by Allison Jane, during the freezing soccer tournament last weekend. It was then that I decided I wanted to line the whole thing with fluffy loops.
The cap itself is knit in a neat looking broken rib stitch. It was nice to make something so differently shaped than the usual things on my needles.
Every part of this was a good change of pace- the stitch pattern, the shaping, the loops, and the notions.
I wasn’t sure if lining the entire thing would affect the fit of the hat, but it doesn’t seem to. I tried to stagger the loops from one row to the next. I like that they didn’t have to be too precise. I could just eye it and start working.
This was my first accessory to try from the Holla Knits Accessories 2014 collection. There is some really fun stuff in there! I know I’m going to make Cedar Glen Mitts during the upcoming Holla Knits Knitalong
