Bounce is Only the Tip of the Iceberg

This hat is SQUISHY!  Mmmmmmmmm.

Bounce 1

Between the brioche rib and the Andy's Merino yarn it is just the thing to comfort a daughter who is not feeling her best.

Bounce 2
Pattern:  Bounce by John Brinegar
Yarn:  Farmhouse Yarns Andy's Merino purchased at Purl Soho
Needles:  US 10 & 10.5

Mods:  I worked the brioche rib all the way through the crown decreases.  The pattern calls for sockinette in the crown area.  The downside of working the decreases in the rib is that there are four very pronounced points on the top of the hat.  (Despite a nasty cold, the model did a bit of work creatively smooshing the hat to get the photos to look their best.)  I'm hoping blocking will help make the points a little less prominent, otherwise I'll have to rip and rework the crown.

Crispianna started a Through The Loops group on Ravelry.  The plan is to have it as a place to show off your finished Through The Loops projects, have discussions of patterns, get questions answered, find updates on new patterns in the works, join knit alongs, etc.  If you are interested in joining you will find it here.  Thanks!

The hat is beautiful. Sorry the model is feeling under the weather.

It looks lovely, the colours are perfect for the season. Model looks great considering.

I hope your daughter is feeling better soon. The hat should heal her! It's so pretty! It's made with some of my favorite colors.

Hooray for your own Ravelry group, that is fantastic!! Love the squishy-squishy Bounce:)

Oh sweet hat! Thanks for the link! I've admired your choice in Farmhouse Yarns before but have yet to try. I also want to join your Ravelry group - one prob, I haven't started any of your patterns yet - I need to fix that one asap!

You would never know your daughter isn't feeling well. She's getting to be a pro at modeling!

I hope that she is feeling better soon :)

You weren't kidding about the hats, were you? ;-) Another fabulous design, even if the model wasn't feeling to well. Guess it is that time of year again, eh?
