Posts Tagged ‘Vinter Lue’


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!

I am having a time locating the white Wool-ease to finish the Keyboard Scarf, so it is still on hold… poor Bob!

Vinter Lue in Progress


I am making the Vinter Lue hat by Theresa Vinson Stenersen. The pattern is free on Knitty. I am almost finished here. I still have to do the front and back trim and the earflap ties. Then I am going to block it. More pictures to come. This hat is for Michael and he will be here Tuesday, so my goal is to get it done by then.

I had to put the Piano Scarf on hold because I ran out of white Wool-ease and I couldn’t find it at Joanns or Michaels. I had to order it online and am waiting for the mailman to bring it. It’s true that crochet takes more yarn then knitting.

 I will post the final hat pictures and all the details when it is done.
