Selbu Modern

Here is the final knit of 2008...blocked and finally photographed!

selbumodern II

Started and Finished over 2 days of christmas holidays!
Pattern: Selbu Modern
Yarn: Elann Devon in mauve and green a partial skein of each.
Adjustments: None really. I went up in needle size (US 3 for the ribbing and US 4 for main section). I used a tubular cast on. This one is my favourite. The instructions are well written...there are pictures...and it is easy to do.
I really liked knitting this and it's already been worn out to my knit and chat! It's a keeper!

My sister saw me sporting Selbu and she says: "Hey, nice hat! Where did you get it?"
I just stood there thinking...really? Does she really think that I didn't knit it?! HA!
She thought I bought it! Seriously!
and that my friends is why....
I am knitting her one!

It's beautiful! I love that you chose a spring green for a hat with(IMHO) bud-like motifs.

I love that hat! The colours are actually much richer in real life than the photos show on my monitor. That colour combination is great!

Isn't it the best when people want to know where to buy something you've knit?? I like how the fair isle pattern on the hat shrinks with the decreases.

Perfect timing! I love your hat. My sister in law asked for a hat to match her norweigen mittens I made her last year. This pattern will be perfect! Thanks and happy new year.
