Big Twist Gradients Hat Experiment

Big Twist Gradients Hat Experiment

My eye caught these recently when I was feeding my yarn addiction.  I had to grab a couple to see what I could come up with.  

First, let’s review this yarn.  It’s a lighter weight than I thought it would be, I worked it up with a size I hook but … I’m guessing a G or and H would be more fitting.  

I’m a big texture girl as well and this yarn is so soft!  Like, baby blanket soft.  

So my first inclination is always to try a yarn with a hat.  I can do it without much thought and I can get a good feel for the yarn that way.  So yes, I made a slouchy beanie!

This photo shows nicely how the colors fade into one another.  The white color is a bit off-white so I sewed on a super white faux fur pom pom to continue the fade with just one more shade.

So far, I like it!!!!!  I still have enough yarn to make probably two more hats… thinking of experimenting with a matching scarf, however….the experiment continues.  I also bought the same bundle in the color ‘Rose‘ so we’ll see what project I decide to try with that one!!!!

For now, here is the pattern I used on the above slouch:

1 Bundle Big Twist Gradients

Using a yarn needle, weave tale in and out of top stitches and cinch tight.  Double knot yarn around a solid stitch in the center of your cinch and tie off, weave in ends if you prefer.

Tie on pom pom if desired

Enjoy playing with this yarn, it’s going to be a fun one I think!!!
