Lina

pattern : Lina by Jokoknits, tikku.blogspot.com
yarn : Touch NZ 8ply merino naturally dyed
needles : 4mm dpns
mods : 4 pattern repeats instead of 5.


Sometimes you know you're making a pretty thing.
This Lina hat was just that.
Look how crisp the pattern comes out.
It fits Lieveke like a glove ('xcept it's a hat duh).
The color, chartreuse, one of my favorites,
The yarn a 100% NZ merino, naturally dyed.
And all in a mere weekend.
Oh I had fun knitting it.


Happy weekend
-Lies

Wow - all of your creations are so tidy and perfect! Also...your presentation rules.

I landed here after reading Nikki's post about (you) paper dolls and her "playing" with them (a.k.a. frightening her child).

Love your work.

This is beautiful - and "crisp" is definitely the word I would think of to describe it. I always like doing patterned hats - it makes the making so much more interesting and also seems to help it finish faster!
