Bamboo Yarn Visit, Blocking a Hat



I finnally finished the Hat and it was fun making this video. Bamboo is a very peculiar yarn, it has many filaments and a luster sheen. This one in specific is Royal Bamboo by Plymouth Yarns. It behaves a lot like cotton when wet. It soaks up water of course it is plant material. I would recommend itfor knitting with size 7 or abov needles. Crochetting was a challenge for me, so I decided to do a knit project. Thanks for stopping by!
