Pretty in Pink donation

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.

  1. LOL! Nice Christmas-y pic, Eve.

    I know you’re having a bear of a week with school, and still time to knit the chemo caps. Feel good about that.

  2. I am still plugging away on hats. But I think I am going to be knitting all of these for the children in the community that need warm clothing. We have a giving tree at school for the hats and mittens. I did knit 2 others for the hospital though. Good Luck with all your school stuff.

  3. What a really neat picture! I had a good time not just knitting the hats, but giving them away to those need them. IT’s a good feeling.
