On the Needles 3/6/15

A bit of color work in a Modicum hat. This is a nice pattern because it uses up small balls of yarn.

The one thing I didn't like about this pattern was all the ends that I had to weave it. It's one thing with wool because it will eventually felt a bit and so the ends will 'stick'. But with acrylic yarn like this, the ends have a tendency to unravel from the weaving. I usually use a dot of Fray Check (yes that one!) between the woven in end and another loop of yarn. It works!


  1. A friend gave me that pattern and the yarn to make a hat. I really need to get started on it.

  2. Very nice... love the pattern and the colors! Great job!!!
