Stash busting #6 - One more hat.


Jeg fortsetter å bruke opp mer lagret superwashgarn i dystre farger, og har strikket en enkel lue til.
Denne gang en god gammeldags rullelue til meg selv. Rulleluer var in da jeg gikk på ungdomskolen, og jeg strikket et par slike den gangen.

Jeg har sett på blogger at flere har strikket rullelue-lignende luer, og har sett etter oppskrift, men ingen oppskrift har passet garnet jeg skulle bruke. Dermed gjorde jeg som vi gjorde på 80-tallet; jeg målte rundt hodet mitt og la opp masker deretter.

Av garn hadde jeg ett nøste pluss to små restenøster i samme farge, og jeg strikket ganske enkelt opp alt garnet på pinner nr 4.
Det holdt akkurat, og jeg synes lua passet kjempefint.
Enkel og grei, i litt retro stil, og en fin vår/høst-lue.


Well, I have continued working with the gloomy coloured superwash yarn from my stash, and have finished another knitted hat.
It's an easy "rolling hat" (as we used to call it) for myself. These hats were popular back in the days when I was in Secondary school, and everybody knitted them.

I have noticed that some bloggers have knitted similar hats recently, and have been looking out for a pattern, but did not find any that would suit my superwash yarn. So I ended up doing the same thing we did back in the 80s; I measured around my head and cast on the number of stitches needed.

I spent one full ball of yarn plus two small leftover balls of the same yarn, and I knitted it all up on needles no. 4.
It was just enough for the hat, and I find it fits nicely.
It's a simple looking hat, in a little retro style, and good for spring/autumn. 



Det er min yngste datter som er snill og flink luemodell her :)

My youngest daughter is the kind and clever hat model here :)


Til denne lua gikk det med 72 gram garn.

Jeg har igjen enda noen få nøster superwash garn i to gråfarger og brunt, og jeg håper å få to eller tre luer til ut av det. Ikke så spennende kanskje, men absolutt praktisk :)


72 grams of yarn was spent on the hat.

I still have a few more balls of superwash yarn in greys and browns, and I hope to get another two or three more hats out of it. Not the most exciting projects, but certainly practical :)

Even though it's practical and in a subdued colour, it's still a stylish hat with the rolled brim ... cute! Stunning hair on youngest too ;) Wendy
