Short Rows

Short Rows

 

The short row experiment turned into s small little hat, much appreciated by M. There is a hat craze going on at their school at the moment with most of the children wearing hats all the time…. This one was very good, according to M, since I added the small flowers at the brim.

It was a very nice experiment, short rowing for shaping is such fun. The yarn with the long color repeats helped too although I wouldn't buy this  particular yarn (Let's Knit of Svarta FĂ„ret) again though, splitty is my complaint. I actually do not complain a lot about splitty yarn, but this one is. The coloring and the texture of the knitted fabric are quite nice though. Any light fingering yarn would do for this pattern and I guess I will make some more of these hats in the near future.

Since it was fun to knit and quite easy I made it into a pattern (Short Rows) which one can get at Ravelry for free here or
