I would like to update the blog with makes that I have made before the blog existed. Here is the first of many.
I agreed to make some samples for Karina at Rainbow Fusions for her to take to shows that she was attending with her beautiful yarn. This little lot was made from one skein of 4ply yarn. You can’t tell from the angle of this picture but there is a sparkle to the yarn. It was so beautiful and easy to work with.
The recipient is a Birman cat owner and so the hat needed to reflect this with dark brown (Stylecraft Special Aran in dark brown) and cream yarn (King Cole Big Value Aran in berber) along with blue eyes.
I used King Cole 4 Big Value ply in graphite and plum and Stylecraft Life 4 ply in black.
I really enjoyed this project as the pattern was easy to follow and gave clear instructions. It also comes with a chart for those who prefer to use this type of pattern. There was enough of a challenge as each row was different to the last but once you had memorised the pattern repeat, it was straight forward to complete. It was a nice project to do in the evening in front of the TV.
