scarf hat

The Nomad Hat in its original form:


Cooked up in 2003...I think. The yarn is Mondial Prestigio, (lace weight mohair) and the stripe on the hat is an old dk Rowan wool.
And, the swatch I sent in to IK.


The swatch looks so dreary today. I must have been going through a grey phase. I do like grey a lot. The swatch yarn is Knit One Crochet Too Douceur et Soie and the stripe is Classic Elite Inca Marl.

I like the original version too! It's a more ethereal, but no less lovely version of the final IK project. What yarn did you use for it?

Pretty picture with your famous (nice) knitmodel friend! ;) Did you take this at your mom's?

Ooh- I love this version! It looks so soft and cozy.

Nora said...

No, not dreary at all - it's beautiful. [I love grey too.]

Really interesting to see the different versions of the hat/scarf....thanks for sharing this...they all look great!

Ooh, nice! I love grey, too. In fact, I think my personal Nomad is going to be made from a charcoal wool ribbon yarn I have stashed away.

Very cool! I love grey, too. :)

Mmm, understated and elegant. I like the gray, though the berry colors sure do pop.

Like Marnie, I like understated. There are so many different shades of grey, and I think the two you put together are lovely.

But texture is nice, too!
