Another project from stash!! I bought a mittens’ kit from Riihivilla (Riihivilla-natural dyeing, plants, mushrooms and pure finnsheep wool lovely to work with, and the subtle colors are amazing.) but I realized I am not in a mood for mitts, so went for a hat, with a liner band.

Committed to knitting from stash! Rowan Felted Tweed DK Knit Picks City Tweed DK US 6 - 4.0 mm Based on the ships & seaside pattern. the final measurments- 8.5”x 48” all around, blocked. Love the way the felted tweed feels, especially after it blocked so nicely. great stitch definition, but still great drape. Very proud of my kitchner!

For a long time pure Mohair was too itchy for me, byt the combination of Mohair and Silk can be lovely! Light and fluffy, soft as a cloud, and yet warm! This one in Rowan Kid Silk Haze Stripes (Kaffe Fasset colors), US 8 knit in the round and 3 needle BO with CO edge.
