Love working with the Manos Silk Blend and I had just enough in one skein for the Adult 1 size :)
Now on to working in the La Furla.
The La Furla yarn is easier to work with than I had anticipated and oh, so soft!
I knitted about 19 rows for the brim and folded it over as in the picture. The La Furla is a fairly heavy yarn and very slippery; it kept unrolling.
Perhaps, too, the sizing is generous. I did use a bigger needle than the pattern calls for, but I did knit to gauge, so that can’t be it.
In any case I ended up fastening the brim to the hat in a couple of spots so it would stay put.
It came out really nice!!!
