Tubey, Tasseled

  • Pattern: Tubey by Woolly Wormhead from Wee Woolly Toppers (Ravelled here)
  • Yarn: Jamie Harmon Merino/Angora 2 ply, about 115 yards
  • Needles: US size 7/4.5 mm
  • Mods: Cast on with a contrast color.  I turned the hat inside out to do a 3-needle bind off.  When I turned it back, there was a cleave where the fabric pulled in and down.  I decided to use it inside out because the corners were more perky.  Added tassels!

This was another fast and super cute knit hat from the WWT collection.  These patterns are well written and ever so slightly different as to stand out among the crowd of too-cute baby knits.  This particular pattern was perfectly easy to knit while chatting at knitting group or watching a movie, and showcased the yarn very well.  I was really hoping the color changes in this hand-dyed yarn would work out to blend with the stripes of reverse stockinette, and they ended up playing very nicely together.  This project totally makes me want to knit with more hand-dyed and hand-spun yarn.  It was such a treat!

And because I can’t resist putting something extra on the top of a baby hat, I added the tassels.  If you need a refresher on how to make a secure tassel (as I did), pull out your copy of Stitch ‘n Bitch or check out this tutorial.

Happy weekend knitting!
