My Mackinack

I made a thing!

Its somewhat of an acheivement for me. From yarn purchase to completion only took 7 days! Almost all yarn I but sits in my stash for ages so I am pleased with this! 

Its also an acheivement as I hate working with black yarn, so to finish it was quite good. 

I appreciate that the photos dont really capture the texture. It is really hard to see the detail on black yarn but beleive me when I say it is lovely. 

This is the Mackinack beanie by The Unravelled Mitten. You can find it here

There are only two things I would tell you if you want to have a go. The pattern says 200 to 225 yards. I used Novita 7 Brothers, which has 218 yards to a ball and I had loads left, so I dont think you need as muxh yarn as the pattern suggests. The other note I would make is that the starting chain is that the band is a little tight on mine – the actual stitches are fine but the foundation chain is too tight – so if I were to make it again I would go up a hook size to loosen the chain.
