Year of Projects update 12th August

Woo! Another finish! I'm off to a great start this year. This has to be one of my quickest knits as well, because this time last week I'd only just added it to the list and ordered the yarn!

I started it on Tuesday, as soon as the yarn arrived. I had a few issues initially, mainly down to tiredness and not reading the pattern correctly, but once I'd got myself straightened out it flew off the needles!

I love that something can look so complicated and yet be so simple to actually knit. Because you're only ever worrying about six stitches at a time, you really don't notice how quickly it grows. By the time I hit the green I didn't even need to reference the pattern any more either.

Forgive my unwashed hair, I had just finished mowing the lawn

I love that the colour change from greens to pinks happens right in the middle.

It used up just under half the ball as well, so I could make another one if I wanted! The beauty being, a second one would be completely different to the first because of the colour changes in the yarn. I might have a look for other patterns I could use it for first though, and fall back on a second one if I can't find anything else I like.

Pattern: Quant by Star Athena
Yarn: James C Brett Monsoon in shade S7
Needles: 5mm dpns and straights


  1. This looks so awesome, Tink!

  2. I had similar issues with that pattern (my fault for not looking at it closely enough, and not paying attention to what I was doing). . .  But the end product is so worth it.

    As I said on Twitter, your headband came out beautifully!  Such great yarn, too.  :)

    I'm glad to hear that it is not a difficult as it looks, but it still looks pretty intimidating!  Well done!

  4. Entrelac is so very, very cool. And it looks awesome, even if it's not as hard as it looks (it looks VERY hard, btw!)  The yarn is perfect for it, and it really suits you :)

  5. I nominated you for a blog award :O); pls check it out on today's post.

  6. I've been eyeballing entrelac for awhile. It looks amazing!

  7. Really great Headband and the colours are gorgeous and I love that even with a second band it would be different. The enterlac looks great, I really should try it, looking at yours it looks amazing.

  8. Lovely!  Makes me itch to start my own entrelac adventures!

  9. Love the entrelac headband. I just came from another blogger who is working on that pattern as well. Definitely going to add that to my long todo list. The colors are gorgeous. 

  10. I love the headband, the colour change and the pattern work perfectly together!

  11. awesome entrelac....must now add to list , think my great niece could definitely use one....ty for the lovely inspiration....
