I promised a friend of mine a hat and I bought the wool way back in November. I decided to knit another Gretel and knit this in just 4 days for the Ravelympics. Unfortunately I went to try it on after I’d finished and fell madly in love with the thing. Suffice to say, my friend didn’t get her hat and I’ve worn it quite a bit. I like to stuff my braid up into it and out of the way but after a few wearings, the cast on and ribbing starts to stretch out a bit. I will probably try to block them back in at some point. A really lovely pattern, Ysolda is a genius of course.
