more hats


i had a productive weekend knitting brioche stitch which is one of my favourite stitches. and i made two more hats just in time for a snow storm coming up. this is a warm hat that fits so well. one is noro yoroi and one is noro iro both found on sale in my lys in copenhagen. it has been there forever and you can find things there that you can't find anywhere else in copenhagen which is not the best place in the world to shop yarn. and now i want to do more ez patterns. i love the simplicity of most of her patterns. i have fallen in love with the medusa yoke and i need more of her books. unfortunately they are very hard to get hold on from a european website and they cost the same i gbp as in usd.....argh.

  • Can you access amazon.com from Denmark? That's where I've bought most of my EZ books. Even after international shipping, it might be cheaper there. Also, check out half.com.
    Like I said, your hats are beautiful. That's one of my favorite EZ patterns, along with the ganomy hat in Knitter's Almanac.

  • I just made a brioche stitch hat last weekend as well. I was curious if your yarn knitted to the gauge recommended by EZ. I ended up using three strands of worsted weight on big needles to get the 2.5 stitches per inch.

  • i think it is about the right gauge. i cast on 42 stitches though, since the yarn is not so fluffy. i think i used needles no. 10 mm. i can never remember the english or american equivalent.
