Knitting

Friday FOs #3

It’s just been hats and more hats around here lately. And this FO wasn’t any different. Selbu Modern came about as a special request from my niece’s husband’s mom. Her mother has hair loss from chemo and she wondered if I could  knit her a hat to keep her cozy at home. Selbu Modern came to mind since I have been wanting to knit it. So I did.

In looking at other Selbu’s I decided I wanted a color changing yarn and had Jojoland Melody in the stash in a pretty blue/olive combo. The picture doesn’t show how bright the colors really are. The cream is leftover from another project and I had just a little ball. But I cast on anyway. And didn’t make it with the cream. Thankfully I had other creams of similar make so I used those bits and bobs to finish out. And that’s also the reason the top center is all blue and not blue/cream. Oh well, who will care.

I thoroughly loved making this hat!! The pattern just seem to flow so easily from the needles. It was very easy to memorize the pattern as I knit across each row. I can’t explain it. Sometimes I struggle keeping the pattern set with lace work, but color work seems to be different for me.

And still on that colorwork kick, I need to make these!!!

OK, join the rest of the parties here, here, and here.
