Yay! I finished the actual work last week, but I waited until I could get a good picture, and I figured my blue hat in front of a blue box was fitting!
The Challenge: Blue
Fabric: Wool worsted yarn
Notions: The usual knitting supplies
How historically accurate is it? It’s 100% wool (caring about fiber content is haaaaaard), and knitting techniques are basically the same, so pretty good, I’d say!
Hours to complete: Two days? Not so great about counting hours, unfortunately. This was a quick knit.
First worn: Last week, and every day since!
Total cost: Probably a total of about $30 for all five balls of yarn, but this could easily be done with scraps, and I have tons of leftover yarn for other things.
Here are some progress photos, I ended up having to block the darn thing twice, and I still think it needs to be bigger so I may block it yet another time over a bigger plate.
