To compensate for the hell of knitting with the wet hairy seaweed, I finished a hat in a chunky yarn last night. The (free) pattern is Dragon Ribs from Crystal Palace (easy hat), and I have a feeling I’ll be using it again and again.
I used Elle Pure Gold in chunky (black), a bit of something else colourful and chunky-ish that has lost its label, and 5.5mm needles.
It might still get a button or a tassel or some other type of decoration (two words, both the same, hyphenated, begins with p).
Back soon x
** Hope you didn’t think this was something exotic you’d regularly find on the menu in a grill house in South Africa? Warthog ribs are common, yes, but dragon, not so much.
PS. I’m really trying to take better photos, I promise.
good old trustworthy chunky yarns I love them I was wondering about the dragon! :)
Yes, I think I’ll stick with chunky for a while. :-)
Love the hat Jill! And I bet I know what you are going to use to embellish it with. ;) It sounds like the hat will make someone very nice and warm. Thanks so much for sharing. Love and Hugs, Tamara
I need to be nice and warm, Tamara, we’ve had SNOW here!!! Okay, well not exactly snow, but a lot of hail. For us, it’s almost the same thing. DESPERATELY cold. Brrrrr
Instant gratification! Lovely!
Yip, a real quickie :-)
Nice hat Jill! :-)
Ooooo I like, especially the non-specific, chunky-ish bit that had lost its label ;) But non of those “p” things…. Big fat button instead.
oh no, has R put you off them as well???
No but I empathise greatly. Can’t bear the current obsession there is with them right now… They are everywhere! Little fluffy wooly bits of tat!! (That was me being polite). ;)

I loved the dragon ribs hat you’ve made. I tried to get the (free) pattern but it looks like it does not exist anymore. do you still have yours? could I please have a copy? I would very much appreciate it.
Hi Eva, I’ve sent you an email. Let me know if you don’t get it. :)
