A very happy use of my leftover Noro yarn! Love this little hat!
Free pattern: Rusc by Harlee Wentworth. I'd give this pattern my highest marks! Love the texture and way it worked up!
I did do a little modification to make it a pillbox shape. The notes are here on my Ravelry page. I'm thinking I may need to do another following the pattern all the way. Just a wonderful, thick feel!
So... I swatched... and, I swatched... and, I swatched.... I ended up having to go up two needle sizes to get gauge (I hope). Makes me seriously wonder what went awry with my Flat Rib Popover Vest! How could it have turned out so large, when my usual sin is on the tight side. Hmmm... still a mystery.
Then, coming to the realization I don't particularly like the feel of this yarn... I don't like doing k4tog... ever. And, it's a LONG way around. Not boding well for this project so far...
Frustrations with the swatch business... with the feel business... and with the FREQUENT use of k4tog over 340 stitches... All adding up to make the likelihood of this becoming a finished object a teensy bit at risk.
More to be revealed...
Like life... a little good and happy... a little hard and frustrating...
Wishing you all as much of the good and happy as you can get!
