sawtooth hat

i think it's a rule, i have to knit at least one new hat for myself each winter...  this pattern is from this book which i found at our local library (a signed copy!). i hadn't really done much colorwork before and it's been a while, so i had to unravel a couple of times until my tension seemed right. overall this was definitely quick and easy to knit.  i used this mustard yarn and this grey yarn. i really like how snug the ribbing is and although the pattern did not call for a pompom…  well, how could i resist? anyway, it's a very warm hat with all those floats inside!

  1. It's gorgeous. I saw a rtw scarf in a store with a similar design, made in 2 layers to hide the floats in the most beautiful fine soft yarn - would be so warm.

    1. thanks so much! pretty much any color combined with grey is okay with me, but i am particularly fond of mustard. :-)

  3. So so pretty! These colors are really great together. And of course, the pom is great too. :) I've still never tried colorwork because of my tension issues... I never learned to knit with proper tension, but maybe one day!

    1. thanks emily! funny, i feel like maybe i'm finally getting a handle on tension… my newest knitting project seems to be going smoother than most others… maybe i turned a corner with the colorwork. we'll see! :-)
