Blue Moon Tychus

ManMadeKnits's picture

I used some of the leftover grey because I thought there wasn't enough yarn left to just do two colors. Of course it appears that there IS enough left to have done just two, but this looks so nice, I don't care. I almost wish it weren't a present...

Also, if you need any tips on how to make the seam in back less apparent, I've got a few, but I need some help making the sew-ins less obvious. ( Seam hidden in back for religious purposes)

You guys have sold me. I

You guys have sold me. I decided to give the tychus a try. Glad I did. It was fun. Took me about 4 hours total from CO to FO. Cool. I was going to give it away but might just keep it.

If you'd like to see my version it's at:

Oh, and for the record I only did four panels too and can't imagine the giant it would take to fill in one of these hats with five!

Grace and Peace,

it looks great Tim! see,

it looks great Tim! see, not so hard. I do the 5 panels, size 7's, CO 50, unless I want to do a beanie then CO 40. I just thought the 4 panels looked too pointy, *shrug* now we just need to drag Tucker in, I'm sure he'll be kicking and screaming all the way. Come to the dark side Tucker, we always have fresh cookies.

Your choice of colours definitely shows the patterning very well, and blend wonderfully! Very nicely done.

my daughter has knit one

my daughter has knit one scarf, EVER. and she made one in about 3 days without screaming, cussing or throwing needles. I'm betting you can do this.

I hate that back seam, her

I hate that back seam, her directions made it way to wide. I just cast off on the last color and don't bother with the knit rows. sew-ins? you mean like weaving in your ends? for all my ends I basically do a duplicate stitch can hardly tell they are there. I love you your hats. I like the 3 color hats too, I made one for my fiancee in black purple and grey, liked it so much that I plan to knit one up for myself :D
