The bead shot:
Since I am using US 7 needles, my stole when gently blocked is about 23 inches in width.
And late, as always, to the party, I will now extol the virtues of The Grumpy One. While helping Susan with her Odessa, I became so completely hooked that I had to knit one myself. Since it is to be used as a chemo cap, I made it half an inch deeper. It was knit in a mystery yarn that I am pretty sure is Lavold Silky Wool. And here, because I couldn't resist this adorable little face, is Dr. Destructo modeling the finished cap.
Later, I added an i-cord with beads threaded through the bottom row of yarn overs.
Without the beads on the crown, it just needed something, you know what I mean? Plus, the silk content of the yarn made me wonder if it would hold any kind of shape at all.
Thank you, Kathy, for a great and addictive pattern!
