knitting flaps, next step.

I have been sick for the last 2 weeks with the retched flu. Barely enough energy to do anything including knitting.
BUT...
I did do some. The hats have me. I keep knitting and thinking the next level, the shortness of time to do a hat lets me indulge in knitting and thinking the next step in a relatively short period. I get to experiment, my fav...
Presenting the twirly flaps.



On this one, the flaps are worked on 6 stitches and 8 ridges. The I-cord is thicker and makes for a good relief effect.
Still working with Noro, I should be getting free wool for the publicity...
Wishful thinking!!!

The next one worked in Silk garden sock, a twirly twist.


As I was working the flaps I decided to twist them to give them even more texture. Worked on 5 stitches, simply took the flap off the needles and twisted it before putting back on the same needle. I like that effect, makes knobby thingies... Left the tails dangling, maybe a wish on my part to have more hair...
Needless to say, I am working already on the next one, this time
bi color, stay tuned...

Fun hats. Love the colours and the "tails". Hope you're over the flu. It must have been a bad one to slow Frenchette down!
