The folks over at LoveKnitting launched a new yarn towards the end of last year, and I was lucky enough to get a sample to try. And I turned those yarn samples into a Hat (because none of you were expecting that).
The yarn is Willow & Lark Ramble, a yummy British Wool DK, that comes in a good range of colours. I'm not working with mill dyed much these days as my heart belongs to hand-dyed, but I did enjoy knitting with this yarn. It's got good bounce and stitch definition.
Sequential is a striped beanie in DK with a difference - the stripes are based on Fibonacci. The sequence is worked and mirrored and I really like the way the pattern plays out.
I don't have a great deal of photos of this one as somehow we didn't quite manage that in the shoot but this one is enough - it shows the pattern. The crown is a simple spiral decrease with a soft line.
This is due to be published free later in March but members of The Woolly Hat Society will find it in the newsletter going out this thursday, 1st march. Go sign up! There's some good stuff coming in this issue.
