It’s Tuesday and I’m still not waiting for Friday to give this hat the FO treatment! I love it too much. I can’t wait to wear it! The yarn is Lionbrand Acrylic Bon Bons. Despite the fact that I’m a total yarn snob, I couldn’t resist the rainbow fun. Each bon bon pack comes with 8 tiny little balls…28 yards of adorable each!
The pattern was fun to knit too! It’s a 1×1 ribbing and slip stitch combo that appears striped on one side and spotted on the other. A non-matching but equally beautiful reversible stitch that is easy to execute (sorry this eliminates you double knitting!) is so rare!
I’ve decided I like the stripes out with the spots turns up (on the left). Both the spots & the stripes read better on the left. The hat on the right is fun but there’s a lot going on–big wonky slipped stitches, loosey goosey purl stitches. I think a wash & fluff will improve it all!
Give it a try yourself! It’s worked in the round, over a multiple of four. Two rounds of K1, P1 in color A followed by two rounds of sl1 wyib, P1, K1, P1 in color B.
