I decided to go ahead and knit myself a Wurm hat next, as it used up some leftover yarn bits I already have. Since I like Zanetta’s Wurm I followed her guidelines for the number of repeats and decreasing. I used size 3 needles and CO (my Rav page) only 88 stitches (instead of 112) because the yarn I used, Hayfield Ibiza in Hessian, held double, is quite stretchy. For the knit stripes I used a miscellaneous blue that I picked up, somewhere, sometime ago. It’s a bit thicker, being worsted weight yarn, and I think it’s likely an acrylic, and maybe cotton, blend. I was going to do multicolored stripes but I didn’t have any other yarn that would work for this hat. Luckily, the remainder of the blue skein turned out to be just enough. I do like these two colors together.
Given how chilly it is, inside and out, I skipped blocking and went straight to wearing. I’ll have to remedy that soon.
