Yarn Restyle - Cowl To Hat

If you are a regular reader of my blog you may remember when I posted this cowl. After a comment by a reader I tried it on and realized I had used too few stitches and knit it too tight.
I still felt I could use it but it wouldn't work to double wrap.

When I went back to the Yarn Lady she had one more skein of this. I decided to knit another one correctly. I am currently working on it.

I found a pattern for a hat knit with Malabrigo Rasta and decided I'd knit it from the small cowl. My friend Kaye Rhodes had mentioned reknitting without unraveling by knitting and unraveling at the same time. That is what I did. It worked so well. I love this hat and it was super quick to knit. The pure Merino yarn is so beautiful and soft.

This will make a great set for those cold northern winters. It's 80 some degrees here today so it is hard to imagine wearing this, but I know it will be perfect.

The wool is just beautiful and I love the chunky pattern.

I LOVE the yarn. I am making socks with that colorway in Malabrio Rios
