WIP-tastic Monday

Once you pop, you can’t stop!

Not talking about potato chips here, but the Koolhaas Hat pattern. I di dmy first ever Koolhaas recently and got to talking about it in the Amiras forum in Ravelry. I may have enabled fellow Amiras, or at least one of them, to knit the hat so we’re doing a year-end KAL. Not just Koolhaas but any project that anyone wants to knit and hopefully finish before the end of the year.

I was going to use Bugga! for this but held single strand it was too thin and doubled it was too thick. And fiddly too with the non-cable needle technique. So I frogged that and fell back on good ol’ Malabrigo Worsted. I got this hand-dyed skein from my very first ever Ravelry swap and have never found the right project for it until now.

This tiny bit of cast on and beginnings of a ribbing have now grown and includes two repeats of the lattice pattern. I had no time to take a new photo before posting. Hopefully next time you see this, it will be done, washed, blocked and dried!

One thought on “WIP-tastic Monday

  1. Hanging my head in shame with my still unfinished Koolhaas. Christmas knitting has kicked my Kool moo out, but it will be back – SOON!
