This. is SO ADORABLE. I wish it was still cold so I would have an excuse to make it :-P But who needs an excuse, haha, I should just go ahead and make it :-P

Thank you! The sample is made from organic cotton – so it’s not overwhelmingly warm. Or you could always knit it and save it til next fall! Be sure to share with me your results if you decide to knit it! :D

Yooohoo, congrats on publishing! My version is finally dry, now just to make the pompom and hopefully get photos this weekend!

What a great design … thanks for offering the pattern as a free download. I’ll put this in my library and let you know when I knit it up.

Hi

I just completed your pattern drips, which i really love the look of especially all of the different colors on ravelry. I was really excited bc I had the exact same blue sky alpaca yarn (in different colors) that I was DYING to make a color work hat out of. after finishing up though, it is FAAAR too small. Does blocking really make that much of a difference? I really don’t want to remake the hat, but I’m at a loss…

Is there any advice you can give me? if i block it and its still too small will the yarn be ruined? will i be able to take it apart and reuse?

Hi Juls. I think the first thing I would look at is did you check your gauge? The hat will give you a 22″ circumference after you increase at the ribbing, at 4 stitches to the inch. If you are on gauge, did your stranding come out a little tight? It really helps when you start the colorwork to have quite loose tension. Another thing to check, I would measure around your head. If you’re finding you need more than 22″, you could easily go up 8 stitches in the pattern, since it’s an 8-stitch colorwork repeat. But if you want to try blocking it, it’s pretty amazing what blocking can do sometimes – you can whip the yarn into submission, unless your tension with your colorwork was too tight. Before you block (if you decide to go that route), do measure your head, so when you pin it out, you can make it the desired circumference.

Good luck! Let me know if you need more help.
