Koolhaas
Is anyone interested in joining along on the Koolhaas hat from IK Holiday Gifts? I have other WIPs but I just couldn't resist casting on for this. I'm using Malabrigo.

Sounds fun! I have a lot of things that need finishing but its a really cool hate so I will join you in a KAL. I have a yummy Handpainted Baby Alpaca that I got from My Favorite Yarn Shop at the Shenadoah Valley Fiber Fest this past weekend.

I am thinking of making that for me in Mmmmm as well. If if turns out OK, I have more yarn to make one for my oldest DD.

I have Koolhaas in my queue. I'm still looking for some hot pink washable yarn for it, because that's the color my niece wants for her hat. :D

Well I frogged my first attempt with the mmmm. Not that the yarn isn't great. Might be my tension but I didn't like how the stitch definition didn't show up too well. Could have been the colorway too. Anyway, I started over with Cider Moon Glacier and I am much happier. I'll take a pic tomorrow!

I got through the ribbing part and just started the pattern. Ugh! It really takes a ton of concentration.

Here's a link to a pic of the ribbing. I really love the yarn I am using.

That color is great! It does take a bit of concentration. But I am tring again with no cable needle (thanks to Grumperina's tutorial) and it is going great. I had tried once without the cable needle and didn't really "get" it. But it seemed to have clicked.

Here are a couple pics. The first one shows the colors the best.

Done! I just love the pattern and the decreases are so ingenious in maintaining the pattern. Not using a cable needle is definitely the way to go especially with it just being 1 stitch cables.

I'll definitely do another in some different yarn.




ANd one more cute pic!
