This pale pink shade (it’s called Wood Dove) had to be knit as well.

And I thought it was the perfect way to round out this collection. This time I worked one repeat of the Shetland bead insertion and played a little more with the ribbing.

The hat is knit in a fitted, beanie style so the ribs can spread out beautifully, and I love the transition where the reverse ribbing is used as an accent to the background of the hat body. Up top, the crown decreases continue to play with the single ribs in the shaping.

To match, I created some very simple mitts with the leftover yarn, again playing with the ribs, but this time omitting the lace. Both projects are quick and fun and easy to modify – and a good way to try out some of the other gorgeous colors O-Wool comes in – or an excuse for any sweater leftovers.
