I recently made this set in Pickles Extra fin merino in the colourway Gresskar for an almost 2 year old relative and now that it’s arrived I can show it to you. I used Bon bon toque pattern for the hat and Heartwarmer for the cowl, both patterns are modified to fit the yarn since the patterns was intended for a larger gauge then preferable for this yarn and I think it tuned out all right. If I wear to make heartwarmer agin however I would change the seed-stitch for twisted ribbing which I think makes a neater edging.
Ptarmigan by Jared Flood I used 60 gram, 216 meter of Natural Dye Studio ANGEL Sock a christmas gift from my soon to be mother in law. I have been eyeing this pattern sense in came out in 2010 waiting for the perfect yarn, wordy of the pattern. I finally decided just to make it and the result is wonderful.
Information: My Gauge is 27 st and I’m using sport whiegt yarn and the width is the same if you make 6 repetitions instead of 5 as the pattern calls for. I also made it longer two row 20 the second time on chart B and then a k3tog row and 2 stockinet before the grader ridges.
I hade some with the yarn, my hands where bright red and purple after I worked with it and it wouldn’t come of. I soked it with acetic acid chemise as I am, and I hope that that will have fixed it but I do not know.
