Knitting Notes

Pattern: Lolo by Jared Flood
Yarn: Knitpicks Wool of the Andes Superwash in the Columbine Heather colorway
Needles: Size 8 circs and 7 DPNs

The construction of this hat is really neat - it's knit flat, and then joined together at the back seam, with a little tiny bit of a join at the top in the round.     Other than that, it's a pretty simple knit, but the construction definitely kept things interesting.

Because it's mostly garter stitch, it does seem like it'll be really warm, though I'm not sure if it'll stand up to a stiff breeze.    This yarn was a second choice - I'd bought the pattern intending to use some alpaca handspun I had, but I just didn't have enough.
