Eagle Feathers - version 2

It's done - finally! I never re-knit the same design again, except in this case. The yarn is much better suited to this project, IMHO - it blocks much better and retains its shape. The knitting went so much faster this time around. As usual, part 1 was a drag, but once that was done, the work just zoomed along and voila, here "she" is.

Project details:

Yarn: Elann Peruvian Baby Cashmere in Cashmere Blue
Needles: US size 5
5 pattern repeats and 12 10-row repeats in part 1
Finished size: approx. 8" x 78"

Next on the knitting agenda: the Koolhaas hat (designed by Jared Flood):

I believe that Mr. Flood is a very talented knitwear designer. Please check out his blog:

  4. Hi. I found you blog thru
    I really like the way you improved A Better Bucket. I am not a member of Ravelry so I cannot get a hold of the mods. Is there any way you can post them to your blog? Thanks.

  5. Dear Anonymous!

    I just posted the mods today - enjoy.
    I will post more photos of the hats later, including one without any mods and with different ways of blocking, i.e. more/less flared out brim.
