My sister's birthday wish this year was a blue slouchy hat with a light yarn and pattern. She has beautiful light red hair and the color she picked makes her hair shine even more. Since it's her birthday and I made the calculations anyway, I'll give you this pattern as a gift, too. It's adult size and quite wide to sit loosely on the head. It's not too long, so you can fold the brim and wear it as a cap, too. I'm tempted to make one for me actually!
The wool this hat is made from is Lamana Como, a new yarn. It's unbelievably soft and light. The weight is spectacular for the length (25g for 120m), that's why you should double the amount of yarn stated below, if you substitute it for another one. The hat in the Como yarn is 50g.

My LINKED pattern project has another addition: the summer stole. It's the 3rd in a series of 4 pieces using one lace pattern to create 4 different styles. The summer stole is a plain lace scarf with long lines and the signature square lace pattern. I used a handdyed yarn made by german wool dying duo DyeforYarn. You can find them on Etsy. They have gorgeous yarn and funny colornames! Mine was "dragonfly flying too high" in Alpaca/Silk Lace.
Knitting backwards or also called frogging is an activity frequently done over here in the last few days. The good thing is every version of my new scarf is getting a little bit better than the previous and the yarn I'm using is tear out resistant! It's the same yarn I use for my knitting tutorials.Probably you will not have noticed but it's not only the same yarn I use for most knitting tuts it's exactly the same yarn.
So it's out, I have 2 small balls of yarn I use for EVERY SINGLE tutorial. And you know what? It still doesn't show. I think that's a really hard quality test to be frogged 20+ times. The yarn is named Semilla grosso by BC Garn and I used it for the Caroline and Trigonometric scarf. It's not a bargain but it's......
