This is a chunky version of Knitty’s Shedir. It’s “urban,” so I am calling it the “Oh no Shedi’in’t!”
Oh no Shedi’in’t, started November 29th, 2006, finished December 1st, 2006
Pattern: Shedir (PDF)
Yarn: Chunky cotton
Needles: Started on 7.5mm straights, then ripped apart and restarted with 6.5mm circulars
Dimensions: It’s a little too small for my head (oops), but it would certainly fit a preteen.
Pattern Notes: I cast on 32 stitches and followed the pattern but only did a single repeat. Once I got close to the top, I cut out all the WS rows.
Would I knit it again? It’s a nice pattern, but I’m not sure it works for any less than 64 stitches around. I want to do a couple more chunky hats like this, but the cotton I used wasn’t hugely stretchy and the cables don’t look as good as I hoped. Next time I’ll try with a non-cotton fibre, and it should work out perfectly.
