Revelation

It’s the day the Mystery Hat is revealled. We’re allowed to post photos of it, and we’ve learned the name. Such a fun process! Bit by bit the instructions for the hat came out to us, no real idea where we were going other than that a master designer was leading the trip.

I had two leftover sock yarns, both gloriously flattering forest tones but slightly different from each other. I mixed them together, alternating rows. Sometimes every two rows, sometimes every row. No real reason for the whimsical variation, just whether I wanted to go through the bother of dropping yarn and picking up yarn when I was done a row.

I chose the slouchy beanie version. The beret version got a wonderful little firework of mock cable exploding from the centre. I’m a little jealous I didn’t think to add it to the beanie as some knitters did.

It’s name is Sophora and you can now go get a good look. If you’ve ever wondered about mystery knitalongs, I can whole-heartedly recommend this one. It’s well done, thoroughly tech edited beforehand, and there are so many people to help along the way. Another bonus – it’s right before Christmas, and it’s just a brilliant way to knit a hat as a gift, should you prove able to give it away…

    Looks great on you! I’d never guess that you used 2 different yarns. I love mystery knitalongs, even if I don’t always love the end product. It’s one of the few things that brings back a sense of child-like excitement for me!
