A couple of hats

ronhuber's picture

I have almost finished a sweater for my neighbourboy in Mexico (it still needs buttons) and with the left over Paton's Shetland Chunky I made a hat for Miguel. I used it double on size 8mm needle. It is a Canadian touque of 2x2 ribbing and is really thick. The second I made from a pattern in "Hats On" by Charlene Schurch. She calls it Norwegian Star. It was fun to do and quick. I used Paton"s Classic Wool and 3.5mm needles.

Gorgeous work, Ron! The

Gorgeous work, Ron! The Norwegian Star is sublime. The colors and the design together are perfection. And Miguel's touque looks well able to withstand any kind of wintry blast. Beautiful stitchery.

Very nice knitting. I often was confused when reading about touques - until I actually saw a photo of one. Then it all made sense.
