Pattern: When I saw this hat on ysolda’s website, I knew I had to knit it. As soon as the pattern was available, I instantly bought the pattern and cast on right away. Again, another flawless pattern from her. Easy to follow and not a single mistake anywhere. There’s a chart version and there’s row by row instruction, so you can use whatever is more convenient for you.

Yarn: I bought the yarn because I liked the vibrant raspberry colour (the pictures doesn’t do it justice). I used this yarn because I was sick and decided to knit from my stash instead of going out to get more yarn. I don’t think store owners would be very pleased with me coughing and sneezing while I grabbed and fondled their yarn to decide which one I wanted to buy. I wasn’t very pleased with this yarn and don’t think I will ever knit anything with it again. It was very stiff and felt like plastic. I know it’s acrylic, and I have nothing against acrylic! In fact, I often love it because of the cost. However, this has to be the worse acrylic yarn out there. Never again!

  1. Beautiful work.

    I'm not really a fan of anything red heart... except for Supersaver. Figure that one out, but I like using it for throws.
