Finished Object: Swirly Hat

img_10141

Swirly rainbow hat is COMPLETE! It was a perfect opportunity to try out Helen…I should have taken the picture from a different angle, but that’s ok, practice makes better.

I’ve long lusted after this yarn from The Lemonade Shop (Sparkle Stormy Day in the Sparkle DK base) and it more than lived up to my expectations. Soft, sparkly and just plain gorgeous.

It’s a vanilla hat, started on smaller needles for the ribbing and then went up a size to keep the swirl going. I had some…challenges…with figuring out how many stitches to cast on. I am too impatient with my swatches. Next hat I do, I’ll actually do a large enough swatch and swatch in the round vs swatching flat and see if that makes a difference.
