Heather was home last week between classes and exams. She mentioned that she will be going to a scout moot next weekend with the theme “Reggae vs DIsco”. I immediately thought “do I have a stitch for you!”. I knew this, Tricolor Wave Stripes, was the next stitch in Chapter Four, Color-Change Patterns. It may have been good to do another slouch, but it is difficult to get slouchy with such a dense stitch.
My next hat went from COLOUR! back to white, It uses Basketweave from Chapter Two, simple Knit-Purl Combinations and Braided Rib from Chapter Three, Ribbings.
I tried my best to stay in the pattern as I decreases at the top, but it was difficult to maintain the integrity of the stitch whilst decreasing the number of stitches per pattern repeat. I don’t mind the top, but I think the basketweave got lost.
My last hat of the week uses Reverse Cross-Stitch Ribbing in combination with Mock Cable Rib (as suggested in the book). I also broke into Chapter Nine, Eyelet Patterns with Zigzag Eyelet Pattern below the Simple Eyelet Pattern.
I played a bit with the top from last week. Disappearing 14 stitches toward each other in four sections. This time when I got to the top of this part, I continued up with slip 1, knit 2 together, psso to the top. Not actually that much different than the top last week’s hat.
I didn’t get too far this week because my knitting guild challenge is due tonight and I had to finish up my entries on the weekend. My entries are very much also-rans this year, but someone has to lose, right?
