We received these gorgeous skeins of Canon Hand Dyes Fyodor Bulky in before Christmas, but I was just now able to knit one of them up. And I love several things about this yarn. 1. Quick to knit. (The hat took me about an hour). 2. Warm, warm, warm. 3. Beautiful as the dye starts dark and gets lighter.
Pattern: Perky Little Hat by Sharon Lentsch (free on Ravelry)
Yarn: Canon Hand Dyes Fyodor Bulky (in Love Shack)
(perfect amount of yarn left in the skein to make the yarn pompom)
We also have the Fyodor Bulky with a matching fur pompom.
I did make some modifications in the pattern, since the pattern calls for Super Bulky and I was knitting it in Bulky.
Mods: I used size 11 (16″) circular needles. I cast on 48 stitches. I added 10 additional knitted rounds before decreasing. As I noted above, there was enough yarn to make a full and fluffy pompom for the top, when I was done knitting the hat. I like how it continues the gradient look.
