Gradient is another one of the Schoppel yarns. Worsted weight single, it should come as no surprise that it features really, really long color changes. It is comfortable to knit having surprisingly little distortion even when knit in stockinette and makes hats that are both warm and comfortable.
So here I am on ship with some extremely bright yarn in colors that I normally neither knit or wear with the waitstaff at breakfast most interested every day in what has been finished and what is new on the needles since the previous morning.
First – the quiet beret
As you can tell, there is a faced band which quite nicely covers the ears, the color shades from almost black through charcoal to a nice natural color. It knit up rapidly. Now I just have to get it off to the youngest who (gasp) asked for something sedate. My child who has never met a color she didn’t like and wear along with half a dozen others for good measure.
To balance the boredom, there is the Honeycomb which is also known as Carolyn from “A Head for Fashion”
Same Gradient, different color way. I still have to decide if I am going to knit a brim/I-Cord on the edge or just leave it alone.
and lastly there was Suzanne from the same source. Same yarn. Claimed by Dawn my cabin mate as just what would be grand for a Canadian winter. Dawn hikes to work, walks to work, bikes to work. No question that a warm hat would be a good addition –
and she will even do her own blocking once she is home!
