I had recently purchased some yarn by Plymouth Yarn Co. called Suri Merino. It is a light green with a bit of heather to it. It’s very soft with just a small amount of fuzzy.
I started to make a scarf with a lace pattern got about 30% of the way done and realized that the lace pattern just got lost. I stretched it to see if blocking would help and the pattern was just not noticeable, so I sent it to the frog pond.
One of the wonderful things about Ravelry is I was able to do a project search for all projects using this yarn. Several people made Dashing with two skeins and I liked how it looked. So here are mine
I used size 6 needles and only did 18 rows of ribbing after the 3rd cable. I made these in about 3 evenings. A nice quick project and my hands and wrists will be toasty warm this winter.
I have enough yarn left over that I may see how far I can get on a top down hat.
I decided to use the Karlchen hat pattern. It’s top down and has a nice chart to tell you how many stitches to increase based on your stitch guage. I had just enough left to make the hat.
