Color Stranded Hat
This hat is made with Aurora 8 , Karabella yarn, a Merino Wool blend. As you can see in this picture below I am carrying both yarns at the same time, sometimes I allow one yarn to rest during one round if I am doing just one color.
The Rule is consistency! As long as you repeat the same pattern of what you did around in all your stitches , you will have a somewhat design that evolves with the work. I never plan what the design will look like. What I do is that I use math to see what kind of pattern can I make with this amount of stitches. What is it divisible by. Math , geometry is my nature. On the picture below you can see the single crochet was close with the gray heather yarn, and it continues until you decide to change the pattern or like I like to say the pattern speaks to you that it needs to do something different. Sometimes I make the same hats, so far only twice. I guess I have been lucky and the creative juices have been flowing like crazy.
Here you see the beautiful pattern that the yarn is getting to express through the turns of the rounds and with my assistance. Making crochet hats is a pure joy.
This is the Hat Inside out, I think it looks as nice, but it gives you two views. I wanted to share with you the view from the inside to show you how the two strands look inside. The picture after shows the right side. This is the WRONG SIDE!
This is the RIGHT SIDE, There where three rows of back loop single crochets and as you can see there are three horizontal single crochet rows. Two in maroon and one in grey. This pictures shows you the hat after being blocked and made flat. This is hat is not heavy at all, is very light and since it is merino wool is very flexible and not itchy at all.
I have lots more projects going on and will have more to share this week. Some crochet and some Knit. By the end of the week I will have my Irish Hiking Cabled Hat done. I have to move the Irish Hiking Scarf to next week as I had to finish this project first. I also have in the ethers the plan for a cover for my computer chair, a purse for my niece, about 4 scarves, and another Hat with the Alpaca Yarn. Well enough for tonight. Thanks for stopping by.
