FO - Odessa Variation 1

The Christmas knitting is going apace. I caston for this Odessa on Wednesday at the Topeka knit group and finished it tonight. I do love this pattern, it is so quick and interesting to knit.

Pattern: Odessa by Gumperina (Free online pattern from MagKnits - available here.)

Yarn: Rowan Cashsoft - One ball of Creme (SH500) from the Yarn Barn of Kansas

Needles: US 4 and 6

Notes: Beads Size 6 from the local Michael's crafts store. The beads wanted to migrate to the 'inside' of the hat, so when I got to finishing, I made sure to weave the ends in on the titular 'right' side and then turned the whole thing inside out. The purl side is just as attractive as the knit side, actually.

This is for my mom for Christmas.
