Okay - here they are in the light (or twilight actually) of day.
Beach Fog Thorpe has only 2 garter ridges (instead of the called-for 4) before starting on the earflaps.
- Dream in Colour Classy
- 1 skein yarn doubled, 6mm needles
The November Muse Thorpe has the 4 ridges and fits a bit big on her so she wears it back on her head a bit, but she loves it anyway.
- Dream in Color Fatty
1 skein, 6mm needles
I did have her try them on before I started finishing them and she didn't want me to change either one! I did a crab stitch edging instead of single crochet - just a personal preference. I think that crab stitch makes for a more substantial and visually interesting edging. I also went with twisted ropes instead of braids - again with me and my personal preferences! She wanted extra pompoms but they're a pain in the ass to make so I only did them for the brown one.
Here is the Keito Dama Winter 2007 #136 and a few of my favourite patterns.
In case you didn't already know, I have a small weakness for cables.
