I have never really seen a pattern that was beyond my skill and wanted it. I usually like simple patterns and shapes. That was until I saw the Polar Bear Chullo in the Twist Collective magazine. (D*mn you Twist Collective!) I have now become obsessed with that hat and already have a list of KP Palette yarns that I can substitute for the pricier Shetland yarn the pattern calls for.

Problem is that I have never knit anything with stranded colorwork or with an i-cord edging. But I am really thinking I should just order the yarn, buy the pattern, and jump in or I am going to start dreaming about Polar bears! :)

Order the yarn and pattern, start when both arrive. You could maybe do some practice stranding with some leftover yarn while waiting.

Thanks for the encouragement Suzy. I think I am going to try it. I found a free pattern for a snowflake hat that uses stranding in a heavier weight yarn that I should be able to get done while I wait so that I can practice. I just have to keep telling myself that it's only knitting, if I make a mistake I can frog back. :)
