Another bit of knitting, this time by Dave. The pattern is we call them pirates. He meant to make it for himself, but didn’t swatch and possibly didn’t use the right yarn (Rowan Pure Wool 4 ply, I think), so it’s ended up too small. Thankfully we have a little person around to wear it instead, who has just started tolerating hats again!
It’s a pretty nifty pattern. I really like the way it is really structured at the top. Lined halfway up too! And Dave is really good at colourwork! The colour dominance thing is off on the bones, I think, but his tension is spot on. Well, not spot on obviously, or it wouldn’t have shrunk to kid’s size, but consistent all the way through. Whereas I always end up with colourwork sections being way tighter than everything else, even if I change needle size!
