So I just had to make a "better" one...
Yep! I made another Buckethead! ;op
~ Project Details ~
Pattern: Solaris' Modified A Better Bucket
Another "Raveler" Solaris modified the original pattern to make it bigger and the brim flare out a little bit more. And I must say it is a wonder what 4 little extra CO stitches will do! ;op
Her revisions did the trick! All pattern mods at the link above in her project notes.
Size: For a bigger head! ;op 22"
Time: Start and finished within 24 hours! Zipped thru it since I didn't have to wrangle over the PCO this time go round.
Got it under the buzzard as my last project for Malabrigo March KALs, but of course will not be the last time you all see Malabrigo from me! ;op
Needles: Harmony US 7 & US 8 - per modified version
Yarn: Malabrigo in Stonechat & Burgundy
What I learned: That I really am in luv with both of these colors! ;op So it was worth the do-over with the new mods, as it fits better on me!
Modifications: See pattern info link above & my other blog entry.
I also only knitted 6" of body rather than 6.5". Will more than likely grow after blocking.
