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

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