A couple of months ago, I purchased from Craftsy Franklin Habit‘s course on color choice for knitters. I have watched the most of it, but I will wait until I have time to finish it and I will write a proper review. I don’t know if I have mentioned before, but I am totally addicted to Craftsy courses 😀
So there he offers a hat pattern for exercise – a bubble beanie hat, which I loved. I also found a very similar pattern on Ravelry – http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/droplets. This is only two colors and a little bit different top of the hat, but the bubbles are the same 🙂
The idea from the exercise was to use 2 similar in value colors and one with darker value. I didn’t do it this way, I think they all are pretty much the same dark value, but I feel like the yellow is coming in front of the raspberry and grey.
It really is an easy pattern, I had a bit of difficulty with the rib, as I had never done “k1b,p1”, but I got it after a few errors :))
I knit that hat for the my friend’s granddaughter and sent it a few days ago. I hope it arrives soon!

The first thing I noticed was your color choice – stunning. I wish I knew how to knit patterns. Thanks for sharing your post with the Creatively Crafty Link Party #CCBG
Thank you, Jane! I love these colors too, and the yarn is very soft and nice…It’s going on my list with favorite yarns <3
It turned out lovely, you did a great job!

Thank you for the pin! :)))
I know the Crafty class you’re taking. Maybe I’ll end up doing it, too. I love the bold choices he makes. Thanks for linking up at Creatively Crafty. I hope your friend’s granddaughter has enjoyed her hat!
She did! They sent me a picture of her with the hat 🙂 She is a lovely girl, and I really hope she fights her illness.
