- Ribbed Cap, from Caps & Hats Two: Vogue Knitting on the Go
- Noro Kureyon [100% wool], 1 skein
- US7 (pattern called for 8's but hat was coming out much too large, so had to rip and and redo with 7's)
- one size fits most
- November 2005
- The single skein of Kureyon was just barely enough to make this hat. I was running on fumes at the end.
I've never used Kureyon before and I really like the color I picked, but I will not rush out to get more -- at least, not for a project in ribbing. The yarn is a little scratchy and rather uneven and it left my left middle finger kind of sore after knitting for a while. I normally hold the yarn in my right hand, but I find that my ribbing is neater (specifically the purl stitch after a knit stitch) and a little faster when I knit continental. However, this was just painful with this yarn because I guess I was squeezing my fingers to get better tension or something. By the end of the project I had a big groove in my middle finger.
