late this past winter,
asked if i would design with dream in color’s ‘canyon’ for a mystery kal.
i jumped at the chance. what fun!
i knew that i wanted to
design a hat, but how to keep it a mystery?
i mean once you start knitting in the round on size 16″ circulars…
a hat is everyone’s first guess, right?
but earlier this winter
i had knit up a super warm, oversized braided hat
(the ‘nomadic nights slouch’ by holly priestley)
her construction was such that you knit the brim flat
and then joined in the round.
that might be enough of a novelty
to throw people off track in guessing ‘hat’,
and ‘tohutohu‘ was born.
the mystery kal has just ended, so now:
i chose really mildly contrasting colors,
but some of the other knitters picked things that really pop!
i’ll collect some of their pretty photos soon
to make a collage for you to ooh and ahh over.
i love seeing what color combos
other knitters knit.
