Last year I was getting bored of single rows of colour in my knitting. I wanted to “shake things up” so I decided to do some colour-working. I realize this makes me a wild
woman who you may be shy of associating with, but check out a few of the results.
|I started with this simple hat.
|Then I got a little bolder with a more complicated pattern.
|Olympic fever hit our house – here is a patriotic Canada hat I whipped up!!
|Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Hat (each turtle is represented around the hat)
|Captain America Knit Sweater for my then 5 year old son (he loved it!!)
I liked it so much that I tried a Hello Kitty crochet graphgan with a lot more colour working than 2 colours!
