X Factor UK judge Tulisa Contostavlos wore a very fetching, black - grey gradient rib beanie on the first live shows (behind the scenes interview). I fell in love with it immediately and knew I had to try and copy it.

It took me 6 days, from initial design to final construction, but I’m pleased with the result!

For the show knit, I used two skeins of Galaxy DK. One skein in Venus (plain black), for the brim, and one skein of Jupiter, (black - grey gradient), for the body.
