I’ve been meaning to knit Calorimetry for a long time now, and I finally got around to it last weekend. Please ignore my needs-to-be-colored grey hair in these photos.
It was a really quick and easy knit, both times I knit it. Both, you’re asking yourself? Yes. I knit it twice, because the first time, it was way too wide and stuck off the back of my head a ridiculous amount. So I frogged that one and re-knit, casting on 8 fewer stitches and doing only 5 repeats of row 5 instead of 15.
The result is a much better fitting Calorimetry, but it’s still not perfect. I discovered while modelling it for these photos that it’s still way too long. Rather than re-knit, I tried buttoning it on the third hole, rather than the first. That was perfect.
All in all, I really love this pattern. I knit it in just a few hours, each time, and it’s so easy. I love the concept of it, too, because I like to wear my hair up often and can’t when I have to wear a hat, so it’s perfect. I’ll definitely be knitting a second one, but this time I plan to cast on 92 stitches instead of the 120 the pattern says.
