Finally a FO [Nov. 1st, 2006|02:43 pm]

Odessa from Magknits.  I resized it for a small baby size by reducing the cast on stitches to 80 and using "0" addis. I knit very loosely, so most people would have used 2 or 3's.  I used Cascade's cotton tencel yarn.  It took me about 3 class sessions, so probably about 3 hours total.  The flower was knit a long time ago from merino wool that was koolaid dyed.  I'm not sure of the pattern, but I found it before by searching google for "Free felted flower pattern".  I wouldn't recommend it anyway, it took almost as long as this hat because they had me knit each petal individually. 

I hope it fits her, it's going out today.  She's about 3 weeks now.
