After I posted yesterday about my new Elsa wool yarn, I couldn’t help but dive right into working with it. I rolled it into a nice ball and cast on for the hat that matches this sweater.
The pattern is actually really fun. It’s challenging but easy enough that I can memorize/intuit it without looking at the instructions. I especially like the braided cable. Here’s how far I’ve gotten:
As you can see, the yarn gives really nice stitch definition. I like the natural grey/brown color too. It’s really soft and super easy to work with. I’ll post a longer review of it later, but in short, I’m loving it so far!
Also, on a related note, I bought a set of interchangeable circular needles today. They were normally $70 at Michael’s but with my 50% off coupon, they were a really great deal. The nylon string/chord/whatever its called was a little stiff at first but after using it on the hat, its started to get easier to work with.
