WIP Wednesday 9



Another TV knitting this week. Felicity hat.

I am making this for my best friend, using Malabrigo Worsted in the Amoroso colorway.

This is the 2nd felicity hat I made this week. The first one was using Malabrigo Worsted as well but in the Red Mahogany colorway.

Based on numerous raveler comments, I casted on 80 sts (instead of 70 sts as per pattern). I use size 8 needles for the first 2 1/2 inches and then switched to size 9 needles.

I love this hat because it's easy and a fast knit. It is also very comfy to wear. The yarn is so soft and cuddly at the same time.

  1. I love the colour :) I knit my boyfriend a hat out of malabrigo worsted (dark blue and not nearly as pretty as yours!) and I know what you mean about the yarn being so soft and cuddly :)

  4. pinkundine, I love the color too. I sort of like this colorway more than the red mahogany one that I made for myself. Oh well, I can get always myself another skein!

    MMOS, LYS is dangerous! So is the online yarn store.

    ECL, I am the lucky one. She is a very good friend and we've been through a lot together.
