Last week, I became frustrated with a cute hat pattern I found on Ravelry...it used this new-to-me technique of knitting the stitch below or K1B that totally intrigued me, but after a few tries, I started searching for an easier pattern and found it.
I love the thick results of this knitted fabric...stretchy but scrunchy. Also love the Patons Decor yarn which is a worsted yet on the thick side sort of yarn. And the color is a combination of browns and blues called "Sand and Sea."
Here's an illustration of the technique...
It's suppose to rain tonight and tomorrow, so I hope to get some knitting in and get further along with the hat. There's also a scarf pattern with the same K1B stitch that I've suddenly become obsessed with...so neat!
