FO: Am Kamin Hat

Pattern: Am Kamin Hat by Toshiyuki Shimada

Yarn: 2 skeins of Classic Elite Yarns Renaissance

Needles: US 7 circular needles

Started: January 12, 2010

Finished: January 28, 2010

The translation of this pattern from Japanese to English wasn't too difficult, but it wasn't until I opened the book and was scoping out the sweater did I see something odd.

Go click on the link above and see if you can spot it (you'll have to scroll down a bit...it's the sweater/hat set in red). If you need a hint, look at the cables in the photo compared to my finished version. Go, I'll wait.

Do you see it? Do you see the X-O cable? Yeah... the pattern directions didn't have that in the pattern. Go figure that this Japanese pattern book would have errata in it. I really should have been paying more attention, but I was more concerned with stitch count and decreases verses if the chart was accurate to the photo.

Either way I love the hat and would totally do it again.

It's gorgeous -- I like it *better* without the X's and O's!

How frustrating! Very lovely how you have made it, though. Well done!
