First Color Stranding Project

gardenerstitch's picture

I've completed my first color stranding project! I wanted to make this hat for my brother for Christmas. So, I sat down and decided I would learn to knit continental style. Knitting both colors in a combination style went along quite fast! I was so proud of myself that I had to share :)

The pattern is in a booklet titled "Awesome Knits for Guys and Chicks". I picked up a copy at JoAnn Fabrics or Michaels. It can also be ordered from www.leisurearts.com or amazon.com

Dittos- Very smooth knitting, no puckers. Did you actually strand or did you weave in? I'm weaving in on my present project; it has eliminated my tension problem (and the sweater's as well).

I did strand and I made sure

I did strand and I made sure that the strands were a little loose in back. I'd drive myself crazy with all the weaving.

Well done! ...and your first

Well done!

...and your first colour project!

You're right, it DOES go by very quickly, I think especially because you can actually see the pattern being born as you're knitting...and then watching it develop as you go further and further.

Congratulations.

Excellent work.
