In Riga I bought two skeins of Sia Lambazu Tine, my first Riga hat only slightly dipped into into the second skein. So I thought I'd do a pared back version for my friend who I travelled with.
This link takes you to the original Riga Hat.
For Riga Hat Number Two here are the changes.
72 sts X 18 rows 1x1 rib.
Increase to 96 sts.
Start at Row 5.
For crown - from Row E - Knit 2 tog to end.
To make up I folded the rib inwards and sewed it loosely in place.
I do love a candle and so I decided to use up leftover wax and make my own - here was my first attempt.
|Step 1 - melt wax over boiling water.|
|Step 2 - remove all unwanted bits.|
|Step 3 - pour wax into jar with new wick in the centre and allow to set.|
I got the wicks very cheaply on the Internet and I have loads of old jars. I can see lots of mileage in this.
