If you’ve never done colourwork before Bebop is a great option for a first project. The repeats are small enough that work is quick and the pattern builds predictably meaning you are not a slave to the chart as you are in less symmetrical designs. Most of the hat is comfortably worked on a 40cm circular; no moving between needles or turning your work, just round and round you go.

The model uses two starkly contrasting colours of yarn to preserve the graphic nature of the design but this pattern would look great in a variety of yarns and, because it uses a modest amount, it’s an ideal way to use up left-overs. Long gradient yarns would make an excellent foreground choice too.

Allow 0.5 skeins of background colour (192m) and 0.3 skeins of foreground colour (116m).

Pattern three from the Vintage Purls Winter Sock Yarn Club 2012.
