..... I used Lana Grossa sock yarn with 2.75mm dpns & cast on 120 stitches - can you imagine knitting 120 stitches on tiny dpns - it just seem to go on forever & growing very slowly .... but I did it, send the beanie to Singapore & just heard that it fits! Thank goodness.
.... it's much bigger than the 1st one I did - after felting, the height is 22cm & the body circumference is 63cm. I used Cleakheaton Vintage Hues which again felted beautifully !
..... I just increase the number of stitches on the base & the body & I made 2 handles instead of 1. The bag turned out great - the size is right & the 2 handles really add to the finishing. I was so pleased & hope she will like it.
