Yarns to Love
New from Nell: Resolve
Recently, a hibernating design idea involving short rows met up with the paintbox of MDK Atlas colors, and a new hat pattern started taking shape on my needles.
My Resolve hat begins with ribbing, followed by short rows in ribbing that build an angled foundation—jaunty!—for a band of playful colorwork.
The angle is then resolved by working more short rows so the hat can be finished in a traditional way.
As you can see here the colorwork band is a canvas for delightful variations: garter eyelet ridge, zigzags, blocks. All included in the pattern instructions.
Squee! Mallard and Pear ziggy-zag with little pops of Barn Red for high contrast at the cast on and above the angled color change
From the top clockwise: Navy Atlas with blocks of Seaglass and Barn Red, Mallard and Pear Zig Zags with pops of Barn Red, Barn Red with Garter Eyelet Ridge in Pear, Peat, and Mallard, Natural with Shale, Seaglass and Mallard Garter Eyelet Ridge
This is an excellent scrappy / sharing project. Collective ideas and variations may be born; the band design requires wee portions three colors, making sharing scraps so very easy to do.
While walking investigating beautiful Sag Harbor, NY, my well-worn garter eyelet Resolve slipped out of my pocket.
I’m hoping someone found it, gently hand washed it, and loves wearing it!
