Knitting Notes


Pattern: Quest for a Man by Laura Nelkin
Yarn: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Tweed in the Prussian Heather colorway
Needles: Size 7 DPNs and Size 6 and 7 circs

I knit this hat twice.    The whole point was that the original hat I made for my brother was too big.    I’ve since made a size medium hat in the same pattern for my other brother, which was fine, so I figured this would be fine too.    Well, turns out I should not have done my customary one needle size up from what’s in the pattern with this yarn.   I got all the way to the end of the medium, and it was just too big.    So, frogged that, and did the size small.     Which looks so much better.
