Knitting Notes

Pattern: Jacques Cousteau Hat by Lalla Pahjanpalo
Yarn: Malabrigo Rios in the Glazed Carrots colorway
Needles:  Size 4 Circs and DPNs

BF has decided this is his favorite hat pattern.   Because it's knit with smaller needles, the fabric is nice and thick, and therefore warm.    Because I had a little extra yarn to work with this time, I was able to make it a bit longer than the last one I made him, so he can fold it up, and still have it cover his ears.   (You can still see at the moment where I had a lifeline, in case I didn't have quite enough yarn for the length I wanted.)

Coincidentally, I used the same yarn as the last time, just a different colorway.    I will say, it's fantastically hard to photograph well.    It's really not quite as bright as it keeps coming out in pictures.   Not that it's not bright, but it actually has some nice depth to it that pictures seem to lose.
