Ditto

Here’s my Beaufort the third. I decided not do a wip post but to just get on with finishing it. I didn’t lose any yarn overs when I frogged back so I was grateful for that.

It looks a bit more stretched than the last one because it’s already been worn a couple of times. This may be my favourite project so far. It’s got me more compliments in the 3 days it’s been finished than on any of my other projects. I hope the ribbing bounces back a bit when it’s washed, but because of the silk content it may not.

The details are exactly the same as the last one. I tried to add an extra pattern repeat height-wise but didn’t have enough yarn.

I have a second FO to share with you:

And I cast on for something else for myself. Another Argosy. It’s in RYC cashsoft 4-ply.

  3. […] Beaufort hat in RYC wool silk. I’ve got more compliments on this hat in the two or so weeks since it’s been finished than on everything else I’ve made put together. I love the yarn, and I love the pattern which looks a lot more complicated than it is. I’ve now made 3 of these hats. […]
