Gradient Yarn: Sunday's Well Hat
Welcome to our first post of 2017!
There are many wonderful gradient yarn pattern ideas in Carol Feller's book, Knitting With Rainbows. We don't have a lot of hats knit with our gradient yarns, so thought it would be fun to knit Sunday's Well for our Monday Gradient Yarn Ideas series. I chose to knit with a Pebble Sock Gradient Yarn kit in Sheaf. You could easily knit this pattern using a Lilt Sock Gradient Yarn kit as well, and I would recommend using a more concentrated color than I chose to show of the lovely bias patterning.
When I set out colors for this hat, I decided to go from light to dark though the pattern called for the opposite. I did my pom pom on the large size (the green one) Clover pom pom maker and used the last of my gradient yarn. I would probably have done the medium or small size of pom pom, given how heavy the large one turns out to be.
Here's a quick up-close of the second, third and fourth colors of Sheaf. I love the way the way this yarn makes patterning pop because it is a tight but rounded two-ply.
Thanks for reading along with us on another Gradient Yarn idea! Have a great week and here's to hoping 2017 does more good than 2016 did!
