Peterson's Hood - Finished!





Yes, it was tedious, to put it milldly, to knit, and, yes, it is bulky but is it ever so warm! I have worn it during the day, and on several evenings in freezing, breezy temperatures on the banks of a very large, windswept river and have felt nice and cosy all wrapped up in it. With the very cold weather that promises to continue, the hood will be put to much use in the weeks to come.



The photographs show a very ungraceful line on the sides but the hood fits around the neck with these.

In spite of the mindless pattern, I am planning to make another in a laceweight wool. It will be a good summer project and give me a chance again to catch up with reading, DVD backlogs, etc.

It's great! You're going to love it in lace weight...those four layers are like a marshmallow!!!

Thanks for the comments.

If the lace weight will be like a marshmallow, what would this one be, I wonder? It is denser than an angel food cake!!!!!!

This hood is wonderful! I believe you had the pattern for this- on here did you not? Perhaps maybe you might be willing to e-mail it to me? The colors are rich and warm!

What do you suppose the needles are made of? The look like metal double pointed to me, just from this small picture.

Where did you learn to tie the ribbon rosettes for the sortie cap?
