Pattern: Make Make yarn hat pattern
Yarn: Olympus Make Make
Needles: #6 dpns
Mods: the gauge seemed to be way off in the pattern. It called for 6 sts per 1" but I did the calculations and that would make the circumference of the hat 17" and my head is 22". So I went with a gauge of 5.25 sts per 1" and it fits really well. Also, I took note of the issue that Alyssa had with her hat being to short (beanie length) so I added about an 1.5" before starting the crown decreases. Blogland is terrific! I just really love the color and subtle striping of the yarn!
And here is my contribution to the last several weeks of fall. The one bush in our yard that had some pretty leaves:
We're expecting an arctic winter blast this week so I'm sure this is the last I'll see of my (very poorly taken care of) roses as well. It's been very warm lately so I think they're a little confused.
