Being my first ever project with such frequent colour changes, I found following the pattern from a chart to be surprisingly uncomplicated. I did however struggle with my tension, pulling it too tight for the first half of the beanie, then correcting it (somewhat) once I hit the crown. The result? A good (very good) fit around the ears..oh yeah, this baby won't be blowing off in the wind! I also would've preferred a thicker yarn for the white, but didn't want to change once I was into the project.
I found knitting the hat incredibly time consuming, changing colours every 1st, 2nd or 3rd stitch. There surely has to be an easier way to hold the yarns together to save all that picking up and letting go? Please share if you know the trick!
I would love to try this hat in a different colour combination..maybe reds with a little handspun brown and white. Or green, brown and white! Once again, I find myself back to The Options!
Linking up with the lovely Linda today.
