I'm still making my Quarters Caps. I'm sorry.... I can't stop. They are somewhat mindless and were a great project for holiday knitting. I've gotten so good at these I can handle a decent conversation and not stop knitting.
Here's a new one I made out of odds and ends of my Julia Yarn. I grabbed bits and pieces of greens, pinks, purples, and caramel and set about knitting the garter ridges. It was all willy-nilly with no sense of order.
I really like how it turned out. It was going to be a Christmas gift for someone else but it turned out so cute I decided to keep it for my Julia.
The color changes were made on the bottom edge that is close to the face. I wove them all in but the edge was a little wonky. To cover it up, I picked up and worked a garter ridge. Then I did a bobbled bind off to make the fun little dangly bobbles. (You can find the bobbled bind off in my new book Color by Kristin.)
Now I can imagine making this hat out of a space dyed yarn. Has anyone done that yet?
You can purchase the pattern in my on-line store. It is available as an automatic PDF download for $4.50 and is sized for babies to adults.
