|Cap modeled on a butter nut squash... hee, hee.|
A Winter Solstice Hat is a design by my friend "Colorado Mom" on Ravelry. The designer's version is made with black, cream, sage green, and red, but I used dark brown, pale blue, and red since I had leftover yarn in these colors (Berroco Comfort). This is my first real attempt at a stranded color work and it turned out pretty good (if I can say so myself!) The pattern link can be found HERE and this is a free pattern.
I was a few rows into this pattern before I realized I was supposed to be knitting flat! Duh! I was knitting in the round! I carried on in the round and altered the pattern a bit as I went (I changed the decreases since I was knitting in the round and added an i-cord at the end instead of a pom pom). This is a great pattern and I am thinking I might just have enough yarn left over to make another cap, altering the color combination here and there. This cap is for "Kaps for Kendall"... a knit-worthy cause I recently discovered.
