Another Leftover

And yet another project from last month that I only just got photographed. (I feel like the groundhog emerging from the snow.)

Calorimetry

Pattern: Calorimetry
Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers
Needles: US 5/3.75mm
Ravelry project here.

I liked the one that fellow SnB’r Eileen made for a friend, that I thought I’d make one for myself. I tried this pattern years ago, but it came out way too big for my tiny head, so I gave it to a neighbor.

Since I have a small head, and my ribbing tends to be on the loose side, I used a thinner yarn and much smaller needles, then downsized the pattern a bit.

I only cast on 112 sts, then worked the short rows until I had 44 sts between the markers. The size came out just right.

    I love that design. . . and so wish it looked good on me. But, alas. It does not. Looks GREAT on you, though! Especially in that lovely shade of red.

    I love knitting for small heads. 😀 More like a groundhog coming out to play in the snow.
