shedir is finished
Pattern: Shedir by Jenna Wilson, Knitty
Yarn: Berroco Ultra Alpaca
Needles: US 3 circ and dpns
I've finished it. I stayed up way too late last night to get it done. Too bad I am not that happy with it. It is really long and the top is a bit pointy. I really wish I had followed my gut instincts and made it with one less of the repeated rows before the decereases. I am hoping the pointyness will go away with blocking. The length, well, I can always roll up the edge or maybe the hubby will like it. He has a longer head than me. :)
It's a pretty hat, I love the pattern, but there will be some modifications done to the next one, I think. Especially if I want it to fit on my short, round head. I am thinking the pointy may go away if I only did one round straight between the decrease rows rather than two as the pattern calls for.
Here is a view from the top. I took it last night in really bad lighting, so excuse the crappiness of it. It actually looks yellow. Huh. The pointyness of the hat goes away when worn, so I am not that worried about it. It is, of course, pulled over my eyes to get this nice top-of-the-head shot. Hehe. Oh well.
