koolhas + fetching set



hello there !



My koolhas is finished.



And because I had yarn to spare, I also made myself a pair of Fetchings.



The yarn (Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran) is amazingly soft and the color is perfect (it matches my ski jacket).




Pattern: Koolhas, by Jared Flood (available from KnittingDaily)
Yarn: DB Cashmerino Aran (1.5 skeins)
Needles: 4.5 and 5 mm
Notes: I only did the 4 repeat version, and the hat turned out long enough (I like my hats to cover my ears entirely).

Pattern: Fetching
Yarn: DB Cashmerino Aran (1 skein)
Needles: 4 mm
Notes: I did one extra repeat of the cabling at the end, since I like my mittens to be long. Also, they didn't turn out as snug as I usually like them, so next time I'd probably cast on less one cable repeat (5 sts) than the pattern calls for

wow... they look so great! I just bought the pattern for the hat so I can make one. Hopefully it turns out as beautifully as yours did.

Ficou espectacular! Adorei o chapeu e só por curiosidade, o Koolhas também foi o arquitecto da Casa da Musica no Porto. :)
