  1. Hi,
    I am trying to make this hat and I seem to have a problem when beginning the decrease. At the end
    of Row 8 (the top part) I have 96 stitches. When I begin the 1st row of 20 that row only calls for using 91 stitches, so I have 5 stitches left over. Can you please help me to figure out what I am doing wrong. Thank you!

    3. Hello Sue, no i can not see where you can be going wrong. There is a Ravelry group page kAL for this hat. The group has gone quiet but you may find something that may be of help. The group is called ''Lotus hat knit-a-long''. I would love to knit this hat again so will cast on another hat this afternoon & in doing so, may be able to figure out where your having problems. Let me know if your still struggling with it. Best regards Lorraine

    1. Are you a member of Ravelry ? My Ravelry name is The-Qiviut-Fairy, check out my projects page for the Lotus hat kal & it will lead you to the group. There is no way to link it in the comments section but i will try to add a link to this post. You will need to reload the page to see the link !
      This is not my pattern. I can't remember who supplied it.

  3. SO I found the original pattern and see the error in your translation of it. In line 1 of the last 20 rounds you have an extra K1 at the beginning. Removing that makes it work out fine. :)

Shetland Wool neck warmer giveaway December 2016

Wow....the year is almost over ! It is difficult to believe that i have not posted since June. Time just got away from me. The mill & knitting studio has been constantly working...even over the Summer months when it was hot, i was still selling knitwear & yarns. I'm not complaining as there is so much unemployment about i feel blessed !  Knitters & Knitwear buyers have been so good to my family & I.....keeping us all very busy. We are now sending our Shetland wool yarns & Knitwear World wide & it's a wonderful feeling to know that our customers are enjoying what we manufacture.....Thank you to all who purchased from us, we really appreciate your business♥

I just love working with Natural wool. There is just something about it that makes me feel content, i would even say happy ! 
The nameless scarf/shawl consists of a stepped edge along the bottom in moss stitch, the top edge is straight with moss stitch, garter stitch, eyelets, cables, tubes, box stitch, stocking stitch....a mash up of textures that show up brilliantly in real wool. The earthy colours i'm using are white, fawn & Musket & all 100% Natural to the awesome coloured Shetland sheep.
And as of today-April 22nd....this all i have done....shameful ! Had so ma…
