This week on the podcast I delve into what Test Knitting is. I did my first test knit this summer for The Crafty Jackalope! Amanda Kaffka was great to work with and has beautiful designs in her new book Vol 1 Yarn. The scarf I made from her book is the Bandana Rocks cowl.
Lastly, listen as Brian tries to describe this toddler hat! He thinks there is some sort of cabling and is not sure how I got the bird effect. He did say that the inside looks like a TV that has lost its signal, so there’s that.
Of course this stranded knit hat has a 2×2 rib brim, black and white colorwork design. As it decreases at the crown I switched to a mint color and added a pom on top! This design is actually available on my ravelry page here.
