I just wrapped up my first ever world-wide KAL (knit-a-long) with Craftsy! If you missed the original post, read about it here.
With hundreds of students across the globe, it was a great experience having everyone come together, working on the same project. Knitters always embrace other knitters (ever been to your LYS on knit night?) and I love the sense of community and helping each other that we have, but this was a new experience on a much larger scale. I had a wonderful time and enjoyed watching people knit their way through the pattern in lands both near and far.
After 2 months, the KAL has concluded, and now the Tuva Hat is available for all to enjoy!
Knit with 1 hank of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted on US 7s and starting with i-cords and earflaps on DPNs, we join all the pieces together and start with the brim of the hat. Working in the round with lace and decreasing in pattern, this unique lace hat is topped with a pom pom. I'm a sucker for cute earflap hats and pom poms and the Tuva Hat is no exception! I want to knit one for myself in bright green, hoping my yarn choice will push winter out and welcome in springtime. I love that people around the world are wearing their Tuvas, and for so many of them it was their first lace experience, first time reading charts (the written pattern is included as well) and working in the round or on DPNs.
Lace knitters unite!
The Tuva Hat is available for download here.
