Lovely Loona im Frühling

Project info
Lovely Loona by Astrid Müller
Fun and to use leftover sockyarn
Needles & yarn
US 4 - 3.5 mm
25 stitches = 4 inches

Still in “want to knit with sockyarn scraps” mode, so I decided to cast on another Lovely Loona, this time including the hood.

Casted on the hood as given, but did not want the pointy version, so I did a turkish cast on of 60 stitches (30 per needle) and now I am increasing 1 stitch at each side every other row (i.e. 4 stitches every second row), using a simple yarnover and I just knit it through the backloop in the second row.

Use my gifted sockyarn scraps as long as they last. I assume the cast-on yarn is a Lang Jawoll Magic Degrade »

Washed it and let dry - in wear photos were taken before washing, but colours are much more accurate in those - don’t know there that strange yellowish tint comes from…
