Rose Teal


I've been so happy with my Rose Red that I decided I want it in another color, as well. I used the same yarn, Rowan Kid Classic, since the yarn and pattern combination worked so well the last time, as well, and the same needles, 3.5 mm. The pattern is a genius one by Ysolda. Definitely my favorite hat pattern of all the ones I've knit so far, and there have been a few. I bought the yarn just before hopping on a train on Saturday, cast on on the train, and on Sunday, on my train ride back home, I finished it. (There was some off the train knitting in between, as well.) I blocked it slightly smaller than the red one, since I'm wearing it differently than I originally did, and it doesn't need to be as roomy. The camera, once again, fails to capture the correct shade of teal. It's slightly more greenish in reality.
