View Full Version : FO - Another Colorwork Attempt

I made this beanie loosely based on a pattern I saw on a piece of pottery. While not perfect I am happier with it than my first attempt at stranding.

That is beautiful, Mason! You've come a long way since that first garter stitch scarf. ;)

Wow, what a great hat-I LOVE it!! The colors, and the design. You should be proud, you made an original!

I made a color-work (fair isle) hat that came out beautifully-I thought- till I discovered it wouldn't stretch to fit anyone!! OOPS. but it *is* pretty :teehee:

Mason, you're becoming a pro :notworthy:. It looks wonderful :thumbsup: So, how about a fairisle sweater for you, I'm sure you'll look great in one :teehee:

Thanks, actually the colorwork practice is part of my learning all of the techniques I plan to use when I eventually make a sweater.

The hat is awesome! You have inspired me to try colorwork. I think... ;)

Please, Mason, that is not a "colorwork attempt", it is a full-fledged stranded work of art! I love it. Great colors, great pattern. Nice work!

It looks great, nice work!

Wonderful handiwork. Your tension is so nice and even - that is very difficult for many people - but not you!

01-17-2008, 02:14 PM
It looks great, it's very creative getting a pattern from something else and adapting it :)

Somehow I missed this when first posted. It's a great hat, and I'm willing to bet it looks good on you. Good work!

01-17-2008, 02:29 PM
It looks GREAT!!!

Did you do it with both hands or just one?

01-24-2008, 05:09 AM
It looks magnificent, Mason! Yeah, stranding is a challenge...one that I try to avoid! But, my DH has voiced the request for a hat like this one you just knit up!

My DH wants a hat that is Native American in flavor. (No, he is not NA by blood...but IN SPIRIT!) Like this pottery hat of yours...it has an ethnic flavor!

So, I guess that's it then...find a pattern repeat, or a piece of pottery, etc...and knit from it visually!

You are marvelous! And this hat is a work of art!

It's lovely Mason! Really nice work. I love how I get inspiration from others and I LOVE that you saw pottery and were inspired to do this...:) I'm glad to hear when people see beauty in things. Thanks for sharing.
