New Design : Tobias

US 4.00 $

Finished measurement 

22"/56  cm  head  circumference, fits an average adult head. 

1  skein  of  Malabrigo  Yarn  Me-rino Worsted (210 yards/192 meters,  100  grams/3.53  oz)  or  any heavy  worsted  weight/aran weight yarn. 

One  US  8/5  mm  32"  or  longer circular  needle  OR  one  set  of  US 8/5  mm  double  pointed  needles or size needed to obtain gauge. 

27.5  sts  X  35  rows  =  4"/  10cm  in Wasp  Nest  st  in  the  rnd,  un-blocked;  17  sts  X  29  rows  =  4"/ 10cm  in  1x1  Ribbing  in  the  rnd, stretched,  with  recommended needles  or  size  needed  to  obtain gauge. 

One  stitch  marker,  tapestry  needle, and scissors. 

I am really happy to show you my newest design, Tobias. Tobias is warm. The doubled hem is folded and the CO ed-ge is attached as you knit a Latvian braid. The Wasp Nest pattern is then worked. Due to its folded hem and the slip-ped stitches of the Wasp Nest pattern, Tobias is the perfect winter hat. It keeps your ears and head warm! With just the right amount of slouch, it can be worn as a slouch hat or pulled down as a slightly long beanie. I told you, the perfect winter hat! Work with only 1 skein of Malabrigo worsted, you will want to have one in each color!

Random : Life being life

Life has the remarquable ability to be itself: life. Life being life. But when it is being itself, it doesn't leave much space for anything else. Life.

But luckily, life is taking a short break. A short break, but long enough to let me tell you that I missed knitting and this blog so much. I have a lot of stuff to show you. Why not start with some yarn candy? Because when life is being life, yarn candy is the best treat ever.
