Last week I shared with you the beginning of a new project, using a crochet Brioche stitch that I’ve figured out.
This week I’m showing you some of the work in progress.
I love the stitch pattern, the colour change is so effective. At first glance it really looks like knit!
And then there’s the decrease:
This took a bit of figuring out, but the overall effect is amazing.
Then there’s the trim:
I’m considering making this a bit longer, because it’s going also turn up:
And the final touch? The pom pom! According to The Guardian, pom pom beanies are right on trend in 2015, and lucky for me I’m all over it!
But aren’t these colours just insane? The vibrancy of the Scheepjes Colour Crafter is amazing. I haven’t edited the images to boost the saturation at all. Quite the opposite, in fact! Orange and hot pink (or is it really Shocking Pink?) are probably my favourite colour combination. They’re just such happy shades. I have a cousin who would rock these colours and my aunt would easily pull off decorating her house using these two. In fact I think she may have even done it!
Next week, the reveal! And you know what the best part is, I’ve made this hat to be One Size Fits All! Well, most…
You can pick up the yarn at Scheepjes retailers all over the Benelux, or internationally from Deramores, Wool Warehouse, and at Paradise Fibers in North America!
Oh my goodness! What a fabulous pattern this is – hats off, Nerissa, for figuring this out (pun intended, but compliment well meant ;)). I honestly can’t wait for the pattern release! I love the decrease and the way you’ve done the border, wow! Marianne xx
Thanks! It’s finished now, just photos and the pattern to write. Can’t wait to show it!
This is gorgeous – I love your choice of colours!
