I decided I could no longer resist seeing all the beautiful Musselburgh hats all over Raverly, social media and podcasts and I needed one of my own! I wound up the skein of Yak Sock from Moonstone Dyeworks and cast on my first Musselburgh.
I must admit I had put this project off for awhile because I HATE fiddly cast-ons with DPNs. I am totally capable of doing them but I have a mental block with them. And my needles definitely slipped out of my first try because it is slick yarn on metal needles.
But now I am off to the races and knitting the prescribed amount so I can determine my gauge and stitch count. Happy Knitting!!
It’s such a fun pattern. I knit a modified Musselburgh for my hubby, ending with ribbing instead. It is a good pattern for yarns you aren’t sure what needles you’ll need for gauge, like handspun.
Enjoy the hat making. I usually steer clear of dpn/fiddly cast ons too, right now steering clear of casting on anything, I shall admire yours as it progresses.
That is going to be a cozy hat!
