A delicious taste of stranded colorwork, this cute cap is fun and engaging, and still simple enough for first time stranders! There are four-color motifs, which—as is traditional—uses only two colors per row. Then, there are three different color palettes and six different charts (two charts for each palette). There is also one more ‘plain’ chart, so that you can make up your own colorway!
This Colorwork Cap shines in a finer DK-weight, warm and woolly yarn with a great color palette.
This 4-page pattern includes:
Approx. 20"/51cm around x 10"/25.5cm tall, after blocking.
4 skeins Rowan Felted Tweed (191 yds/175m each): 1 skein each in Colors A, B, C, D.
Note: This is enough for at least three hats! Or approx. 110 yds/100m in Color A and 30 yds/27m each in Colors B, C and D in an equivalent DK-weight yarn, per hat.
Shell colorway (page 4 of pattern) uses colors 177, 212, 173, and 153.
Sea colorway (page 1 of pattern) uses colors 190, 216, 207, and 211.
Heather colorway (page 1 and 2 of pattern) uses colors 161, 154, 205, and 151.
