The Vinter Lue was fun to make and fit my son Michael just right. I used the pattern from Knitty (see link on sidebar) with just one adjustment. It called for size 8 needles and I used 10.5 throughout. I don’t know if this was a mistake in the pattern, but so many people on Ravelry were saying the hat turned out too small, I checked my gauge very carefully.  It has been weather-tested in the hills of Tennessee and said to be very warm indeed.


I used Alafoss Lopi yarn in Forest Green and Ecru Heather. The yarn was fun to work with and knit up very fast. I love working with good wool. It blocks up so easily and dries so quickly. You can see other pictures of it on my Flickr account. This project gets 5 stars all around!
