. . . has arrived!
This is a hat I named after the lucet, which is a tool used to make cords, as well as after one of my favorite designers, Lucy of A Black Pepper (click the link at the right to go visit her), who does beautiful designs with cables and bobbles.
This hat is begun with the Estonian cast on, which is really easy to do, but nearly impossible to describe in words. You can find Nancy Bush’s video of it on YouTube, or on the August 8, 2010, entry here. This cast on is incredibly stretchy, as well as neat and tidy. If you look at the bottom two pictures, you can see how much the hat will stretch out to accommodate a head!
