Stupid hat, this. It pulled my fingers apart (Yorkshire Tweed is thin but wiry), took 20 minutes to finish a row (218 stitches at its widest point), and when it was finished I didn’t like it very much. On the plus side it was started during a fun-filled trip to Dublin and finished on the way home from a lovely visit to Edinburgh, so it’s full of good memories.
It’s alright, really — I might wear it out when I’m feeling frivolous.
