a website about vegan knitting

sun spun

i started knitting a bonnet at stitch and bitch on tuesday night, and finished it last night!

this yarn was so nice to knit with! it’s 100% cotton and sort of flannelly. i have about 3/4 of a ball left, so i might be able to make something little and matching, or use it as a trim or stripes or something. it looks like pretty old yarn from the label design, so i don’t fancy my chances of finding more to buy. here is what it looks like knitted:

stitches

i learned a new thing with this bonnet: symmetrical decreases! k2tog on one side, ssk on the other. it looks much neater (than k2tog on both sides), and was easier to learn than it sounded.
