What a great name for a yarn color! This is the (relatively) new yarn Snug, from The Plucky Knitter (70% merino / 20% cashmere / 10% alpaca). Wow, is it nice to work with! A bulky weight, with such luxurious fibers, the feeling is hard to beat.
I had one 110-yard skein and managed to make the Close Knit Waffle Hat, with yarn leftover. I used US 9s and did 7 repeats of the four-row pattern (instead of 6), but otherwise knit without mods. I love how it came out – the yarn is shown off beautifully by the waffle pattern, and it’s stretchy but snug – in fact, it fits both me and my husband equally well.
I finished the hat in two half-evening stretches, and while I won’t get any use out of it for a while, a whole bunch of one-skein purchases in fun colors would make great Christmas gifts!Pin It
