What can I say? First Fetlock and now Dissolve, I’ve been going through all my I’ll-get-around-to-writing-it-up stuff and — well — writing them up!
I developed the Dissolve stranded colorwork hat pattern as a good introduction to colorwork (Fair Isle) knitting for people who donâ€™t want to dive right in with a sweater or do something fiddly and small-gauge to start. It takes part of a skein of Noro Kureyon and part of a skein of Cascade 220, and it’s a great small project for using up leftovers while learning a new technique.
You can substitute with any other multicolor and solid yarn you like, the important point is that you have one of each. The crocheted bottom edge is optional. Ideally, your multicolor yarn will have the solid color in it somewhere, making them â€œdissolveâ€ into each other (and hence the pattern name).
Give it your Ravelry-love here. I’ve got some new Noro + Cascade to make another one, I want to play with it a little more — maybe add a felting option, too. If you buy the pattern now and I do add a felted option later, you’ll receive it as an update.
Dissolve hat now available, $4!
