And now we start actually knitting
So, after all those swatches, it’s time to actually knit the thing!
I’m doing a rolled brim (in part because I like how it looks and fits, but also in part because I want to get to the color change bit as quickly as I can, and plowing through a solid brim in the colorful yarn lets me get there quick).
And I generally cast on over two needles (not to make the cast on stretchier, it doesn’t do that, but it does make the loops of my first row of stitches a better match for the rest of my knitting…I’m a loose knitter but a tight cast-er on-er, and this balances things out).
And then it’s time to cruise along, clicking happily away, and wait for the color change! You know, assuming I don’t get distracted by cupcakes and fall down that rabbit hole…
Colorful yarn is Freia Fine Handpaints’ Sport base in the color Flare. White yarn is Malabrigo’s Rios in Natural. And the needles, alas, have no brand as they’re some random ones I found somewhere along the way.
