An interesting collection of knits. All use Karabella yarns however substitution doesn’t seem to be a problem.

One thing I don’t like is that the patterns are written without repeating the identical pattern rows meaning that line 1 can be for rows 1, 5,9 etc, line 2 covers rows 2,4,6,8,10,12 and line 3 covers rows 3,7,11. This can make reading the pattern a bit confusing.

Currently working on the Ingenue hat, I’m using Rowan yorkshire tweed chunky on a 6mm needle.  The size looks good so far, I won’t really know until it has had a wash how well it will fit.  It is a very quick knit with the majority of the hat knitted flat (30stitches x 84 rows) and a small crown (10 rounds starting with 66 stitches).
