Tychus



This is the Tychus pattern off Knitty, and my introduction to short rows. So I know how to do them. A lot.

I made this hat several months ago, for my DH - it's pretty big, but luckily he has a boof head ;) Even then, I only knitted 4 'segments' rather than the 5 called for in the pattern. This is cheap ACKrylic — will probably make more of these, smaller, with nicer yarn, in the cooler months. It's a nice hat design. Apart from the 'Bananas in Pyjamas' colour scheme, which was my fault :D

  2. It's quick to make, quite fun and interesting (I do actually like short rows), and would look great in more toning colours - I like the sound of warm autumny colours!

  3. Short rows are good; very neat finish. :)
