loved every stitch of this perfect pattern….the I-cord edging was the icing on the cake!

I used a remnant of pink superwash merino 4ply to line the brim, I love the bright contrast!

After viewing other projects of this Tam i realised I had made an error in the first part of the fair-isle knitting. I should have purled in between the colours. I am too quick to start these things, however, i don’t think it detracts from the design at all.

Another mistake I made was to do the decreases of the first few rounds in the coloured yarn rather than the background colour…doh!!

I’d model it for you but i have my poorly migraine head on at the moment…not a good look!

PS I’m sorry I didn’t use the yarn stated in the pattern, as much as I love how that yarn looks, I simply cannot bear how it feels next to my skin…this yarn is a delicious substitute :o)
