Yipes Stripes

Posted by Caroline Hershey

This pattern intrigued me after BJ showed hers at the Margaret Fisher workshops. I kept reworking the colors I was choosing and I still had to modify the sequence I used. But it’s a fun knit, lots to keep your interest from the latvian braids to slip stitches. Enjoyed the process, that is until my adjustable needles came apart on me. Thankfully it was not in the middle of one of the braids ’cause I don’t know how I would ever have picked up the stitches. A nightmare. The pattern is available on Ravelry. I used Misina yarn which is my go-to yarn for patterns calling for DK wt yarn. I think I made 11 hats out of it for Christmas gifts for the family, not quite the 17 needed but close.

The yarn I ordered over the net has arrived safely today. I am delighted with the colours & can hardly wait to get knitting. Last year when I was in Germany I purchased some of the Regia brand & was wondering how I would get some more until I found your website.Thank you again for your efficient service.
