That's all well and good making for others. It's also always good to treat yourself. The opportunity was given to me with the birthday gift from my parents : 4 Phildar Mikado woolen ball. Its very soft and radiant. I've immediately liked the colors.
It's a project I made between October and December. It required to me a lot of time but , Ive returned…. I tell you everything.
My idea was to knit a snood with a stockinette stich to practice it. Seeing my work, O. liked the color and suggested I knit a beannie with. I liked that idea.
I had already started the snood, but I decided to temporary stop this work and start making the beannie. I used the same patern than the one I made for O. last year. However I've extended it by 4 cm to obtain a larger edge. I used less than a ball for this beannie. For the final touch, I sewed a faux fur ponpon at the top.
Yet, I liked so much the result with the ribs 2/2 I decided to start my snood from the beginning. So I undid my work and knit it with the ribs 2/2 stitch. So, yes, it's slower but the effect is nicer ! I knitted the snood with the 3 other woollen ball and finally it is a bit short. But I'm warm with it, it is soft and the colors are great.
A tout bientôt, Belle soirée,
