Didn't I tell you that I'd jinx my Selbu Modern by talking about how every one I'd seen on Rav was just perfect? didn't I? well it worked. I hope I'm happy now! hrumph! I looove it color-wise, but nice color does not a well fitting hat make. It's just too slouchy. too loosey-goosey. This picture just doesn't even show how slouchy it is - I couldn't capture the crapitude! I kept thinking that it seemed like my stitches ought to be tighter. I used size 2 needles because that's what I used for another fingering weight beret I made. I think I'm much looser in colorwork though. apparently. I guess it isn't throw away horrible, but it isn't quite what I was hoping for. Oh, yes, I did try to shrink it but the damn superwash I used is sort of made to not shrink! ugh! once when I want my wool to shrink!
