Det forbløffende resultat: Hver maske sået op på pind nr. 6 bruger 1,6 cm garn. Så 99 x 1,6 = 158,5 plus ca 10 cm til at holde i. Der blev målt 170 cm garn af og slået op. Resultatet ses herunder.

The hat I finished yesterday is itchy - at least according to Minimax. The Pirate proudly wore it to school. But obviously Minimax is just as sensitive as MotherOwl, and he needs a new hat, the old one is made out of polyester or some such, and dingy. In MotherOwl's project room there's the stash barrel, but also a coat rack with plant dyed or to be dyed yarns. From there I picked two, one dyed with Oakmoss and one not dyed. Thickness ok like the old stash yarn. Now to Casting on. Drat it - I only made it to 60 out of 99 with long tail cat on before there was no more tail. MotherOwl carefully pulled the stithces off the needles, measured the tail and did some math.
The surprising result: For a cast on on needles # 6 each stitch needs 1.6 cm of yarn! MotherOwl happily measured off 170 cm (99x1.6 + 10 cm extra tail). The result can be seen below.
