Mountain Colors Crazyfoot
213 yards in stash
0.5 skeins = 212.5 yards (194.3 meters), 50 grams

Using yarn frogged from Kinetik, and beads leftover from Ennoble - to knit yet another one of Laura’s designs. :)

Planning to make this taller so it will cover Mom’s ears but still be slouchy. Beading on every other repeat of Round 4 so it doesn’t get too heavy, and also because I don’t think I have enough beads to do every repeat.

Did 13 repeats of pattern instead of 10 before starting decrease chart.

Mom loves it - though after she read my washing/blocking instructions, she said “but I don’t think I can step on it!” (Then I reminded her it will be rolled up in a towel and she should just step on it, not jump up and down on it. LOL)
