FO 2005-14: Cross-Country Chullo


Yarn: Jaeger Matchmaker Merino 4ply, color = 741 & 743
Needles: 2X Addi Turbo 3.0mm circular needles
Pattern: Cross-Country Chullo, Knitty Winter 2004

Blocking this was a breeze! I used a steamer, the kind you can get at luggage and travel stores. I put an oven mit on my hand inside the hat and steamed away. The bumps and wrinkles smoothed out instantly, and the hat was dry and ready to go.

Go where? In storage. It's 75 degress outside. But it sure will look good on the slopes in 6 months.

  • Thanks! I haven't seen either of you in so long. Any plans to stop by SnB in the near future?

    Also, I must confess that Chullo isn't in storage, I've been wearing it for most of the afternoon. 75 degrees isn't that hot. lol

  • Nice hat! The colors look great. And 75 degrees with a slight breeze...right? That's cool enough for Chullo! ;)
