Made this for a friend to fight the chicago winter. Pattern is from one of the Stitch & Bitch books, but we changed the color scheme and took off the odd pointy bit. Worked it from bottom up instead of top down.
Fantastic, I think I'd like to try one of these. If I start soon I might have a few ready for next winter!
Knit away, knit away
They are a 5 stitch I-cord. Once the contrast is tied on, the color not being used hangs out in the middle of the tube. The color change is like intarsia, but I found it easier to grab the next color and just spin the whole needle (anti-clockwise if i remember correctly) rather than try to remember to drop one and pick up the other underneath and over.
Justin - That's one great hat! I really like the blue and white colours. Are the ties I-cord? If so, how did you alternate the colours? I just learned I-cord and want to use it on other projects. Cheers, Jesse
I've got knitting fever in the worsted way.
