Ribbed Cap

I have always wanted to try the NORO yarn. I finally bought a skein with my order with the yarn I needed to finish the shalom cardigan. I received a free pattern from Vogue Knitting that require 1 skein for the ribbed cap. Perfect! I casted on a few days ago and went to knitting. Half way through, I started to wonder if I would have enough yarn to finish. My gauge is probably off, since I rarely check gauge. I decided to go the 5" instead of the 6" before starting the shaping. Following their directions, my ribbing would not line up so did some slight modifications. It's a very easy hat. I think I would of prefer to do it in the round. The fit is disappointing, too small for me. However, it fits my daughter just fine. I love how the different colors play out on the hat.

The colours are so pretty! What's it like to work with?

Hi Trina :),
I do love the colors but the yarn was a little disappointmenting. Not very soft and yarn was very inconsistent. Some were thin and others were thick.

This has nothing to do with your hat (I, too, am getting ready to try working with Noro,though, so your thoughts are very helpful).

I wanted to thank you for generously posting your tank top pattern on Ravelry. I have been looking for a basic pattern for some interesting yarn, but I only have approximately 350 yards. Your pattern is the perfect solution.

Marji: Good luck with the tank top. I think it will look great with the noro yarn. Send me a link when your done! ;)
