This is version 2.0 of the project that I mentioned frogging. It’s a color work beret for Knit Picks IDP. I wasn’t sure if I was going to blog about it because it isn’t in for sure. I have to mail them my sample and pattern and they judge it a second time before they publish it. I didn’t want to come on here and be like “Oh tralala! Check out my bitchin’ new design! I’m so awesome.” and then have my pattern rejected. That would suck.

But I am posting rather publicly on Ravelry looking for test knitters. And if my pattern gets rejected, I probably will want to come on here and whine about it. I figured that I might as well share it with you now. So here it is! My tea themed beret.

It’s knit in Knit Picks Telemark yarn on 2.75mm and 3.75mm needles. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I’m not entirely sure why I keep working on color work designs. I like drawing the charts on Illustrator because 1) it is the only thing that I can do on Illustrator and 2) I really enjoy pixel-ish art because it reminds me of when I was little. I just really hate knitting color work. I was really concerned that this wouldn’t look nice enough to use as a sample. Luckily blocking is my friend because it completely saved this hat.

P.S. Do these pictures look wintery to you? I took them yesterday but I was trying really hard to make them look cold.
