Cowl: damp. Hat: not so much, not yet.

I’m going to have to finish this game of yarn chicken in the morning. If I do run out–I don’t think I will, but if I do, then I could make the top of the hat a solid white and run diagonal lines of white weaving down through all the yarnovers. Or rainbow colors. Or something.

(Having typed that, I got up to weigh the remaining yarn: 16 grams.) Yeah, it’ll be close. What would you do with a shortage at the top? Note that there is, or at least was, one last skein of that dye lot at Cottage Yarns this week. (Hey, Kathryn’s website’s back up!)

I would probably go for getting another skein if possible, but the idea of running yarn down the yarnovers is an intriguing one.

Or if you get close to the top but run out, bind it off there and call it a ponytail hat!

What a gorgeous cowl! Would you mind sharing the pattern in a book, at some point? *hugs grin*
