North Pole Project The Dog Lover Hat

What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of the fact that I created this pattern myself. Considering that it is the very first stranded project I have ever done, and I actually made the pattern the right size and properly laid out the grid, I am amazed. I never thought of doing stranded work before because it looks to intimidating, but I was totally motivated by the cold weather we had right before Christmas and the fact that I wanted to make a totally unique pattern that would suit me and show my love for all dogs. So, of course the love I have for MY dogs was my inspiration. I am so happy that I was able to make this hat exactly the way I wanted. And for that reason I am proud and it has given me confidence to do more patterns and a lot more stranded and Fair Isle knitting. What advice would you give someone starting this project? It is really easy and since it was my very first try at it I wrote out notes of every obstacle that I came across, so I think it will make it very easy for someone who has never done stranded or is new at it.

You Can Make This

hunderland made North Pole Project The Dog Lover Hat with:

  • This is the very first stranded (Fair Isle) knitting I have ever done and I made up the design myself
  • so the pattern is 100% my creation. I used 11 colors of worsted weight wool yarn. I hope people like my first creation.
