I am finally knitting the BFF Hat, inspired by my best girl friend. She chose the roving at the Estes Park Wool Market. I spun the yarn during the Tour de Fleece.
The gauge is 17 wraps per inch (wpi). Which, according to this site, is between a lace and fingering weight and should be knit with a #2 to #4 needle.
I swatched the yarn with #2 needles and determined I need to cast on somewhere around 148 stitches.
I did some pattern math then decided to cast on 147 stitches.
I do have to say that after using these #2 needles, the #7 needles on my Plumber Sweater seem huge.
It's Fiber Arts Friday, so please take a look at all that's going on over at Wisdom Begins in Wonder.
