July 14: To honour Malala Day, July 14, 2014, today and tomorrow I will donate 50% of Tricksy Knitter pattern sales to the Malala Fund.
This cozy topper features a little bit of colorwork and a cheerful pom-pom. And in worsted weight, this knits up quickly, making it a wonderful last minute gift. If you’re new to colorwork, this pattern has all the right ingredients to make this a gentle approach: a small pattern repeat, worked in the round, with worsted weight yarn. And as an added bonus, this is an excellent stashbusting project.
To fit Adult Small (Medium), about 18.75 (20.5) inches/47.5 (52) cm around
1 skein each heavy worsted yarn, in colors A, B & C.
Shown in Mirasol Miski 100% Llama 82 yards / 50 grams.
Hat 1 (top): A Storm, B Snowdrop, C Camel
Hat 2 (second from top): A Bark, B Storm, C Snowdrop
Tip: Each color uses a partial skein, and the distribution is approximately 35 g A, 35 g C, 12 g B. These requirements are rounded up for safety, but you can make two hats from four 50-gram skeins.
