As the project of removing the chaos from my knitting continues, one of the key activities is dealing with all the loose ends (metaphorical and literal) lying around. This means ripping what needs to be ripped (as seen yesterday), but also finishing what needs to be finished. The great thing about the latter is rediscovering things I had been looking forward to wearing before they dropped into the ‘almost done, but not quite’ abyss!
This is the Sideways Grande Cloche, for which I bought the yarn at Knit Nation. It is finally finished and I couldn’t be happier about it!
The construction of this hat is really interesting, and produces a simple yet stunning effect. It’s also done incredibly quick!
I made a few modifications, some procedure-wise: knitting the crown in the round rather than flat (I always avoid seaming if I can!)…
… and some design-wise: I removed one side strap and created a straight band rather than a cable. I just couldn’t make the design work for me as it was and I really love it this way!
I’m so proud of myself for having the courage to personalize a design and make it just right for me! And I’m sure that will add to the joy of wearing it… :)
