If your a member of ravelry you will most likely have heard about the new giftalong that Ysolda is doing between now and Christmas. Ysolda has released the first two of eight patterns that form the ‘Knitworthy‘ pattern collection.
The first pattern ‘Bronntanas‘ is a slouchy beanie featuring a very simple honeycomb cable pattern with a garter stich background. It is worked in the round from the bottom-up and can be knit in four sizes – child size and adult size in small, medium or large.
Some of my favourites on ravelry so far are…
Sarah used one of my favourite yarns for her Bronntanas – Malabrigo Merino Worsted in Frank Ochre
Anna used a ‘new-to-me’ yarn called Klippan Tuna (I love this name) in Golden Carrot.
Carys used JC Rennie Supersoft Lambswool 4-ply in Cream
Katie’s version has been heavily modified as the size was coming out too big.

For my Bronntanas I have decided to stash dive and I’m going to use a lovely shade of lime in RICO Essentials Merino DK. I think this shade is discontinued for those of you reading this that might take a shine to the colourway. But there are plenty of lime-yellow yarns available this season as it does seem to be a very on-trend colour.
I’m casting-on this evening and will post more progress photos here shortly. Why don’t you join me…
And when you’ve finished knitting your hat you should really block it so that it is shown off to its full glory. Ysolda has blogged about blocking your finished hat in one of her ‘Technique Thursday‘ posts here
