Ullared hat, finished

Pattern: Ullared hat, in the book Hats On! by Charlene Schurch

Yarn: Brown Sheep Nature Spun Sport, 100% Wool, Pepper and Bit of Blue (less than 50g each)

Gauge: 8 sts/in on size 2 needles -- I can't remember if I've talked about Schurch's death grip before, but I don't know how she can get 8 sts/in with sport weight yarn on size 4 needles.

Notes: The chart for this hat is not the same as the hat pictured in the book (she fiddled with the chart after knitting the sample), but it's similar and not a big deal. There's also a tiny error in the chart, there should one more black square on the far left in the line before you change the beginning of the round.

I like this hat a lot, I'll make at least one more in black and teal green.

I am still on row 2 of my scarf. >_>

Yeah, I've wondered about her gauge myself. I'm always going down a needle size on those patterns.
