Pattern: Bea Ellis, her own design,  purchased as a kit here.

Yarn: Dale Heilo in red and white, and cotton sportweight for the headband lining.

Started: December 2005

Finished: January 7, 2006
Needles: size 3.5mm. (3mm for the lining)

What I learned: Two color-knitting is a blast. I practiced knitting with one color in each hand. This required that I polish up my continental style knitting, which was awkward at best.
Would I do this one again? Yes, ma’am. I thought it might be too warm to wear this where I live, but the Heilo is a sportweight yarn so it’s not too heavy. I really, really liked making the tassle!
