i’m pleased to show you my first FO of this year, titled RB hat. It was inspired by Romanesco broccoli and while I couldn’t duplicate the fractals, I tried my best to mimic the overall effect.
there might have been a little celebrating when it was finally done. I had to rip and restart the hat a few times because I kept skipping stitches — it’s one of those projects where you have to count almost every row.
RB hat project specs:
Yarn: Malabrigo worsted, saphire green (notoriously difficult to capture)
Needles: US No. 6 and 8
Pattern: my own, which is why it took a while. Will write it out at some point 🙂
Notes: This hat isn’t blocked yet and I’m a little worried about the not-so-obvious-but-still-existing holes between the bumps, but Malabrigo felts a little and the bumps create their own, well, warm air aura, I suppose, so I can safely say it is a most excellent and warm hat.
