This week Kelley decided to knit The Silent Snow Hat by Lisa McFetridge, a paid pattern on Ravelry. The Silent Snow Hat displays the beauty of a small town on a snowy night, while only using two colors of yarn! Kelley had some great tips this week on knitting this lovely hat project. She used Sueno D.K. Ice Ice Baby and Dos Tierras 052 Paris Night to knit this hat.
Sometimes a colorwork chart doesn't repeat at all – which can make it hard to follow while knitting! To make the chart easier to read, Kelley highlights every other five stitches on the chart. Then she marks those same sections off on her work using stitch markers. Those two tricks combined make it much easier to read the chart as you knit!
The Silent Snow Hat uses a Latvian Braid as an accent. In the round, the join of the braid can look messy if you don't add some finishing touches to hide the join. Kelley just uses the cut yarn tails at the round join to sew over the join and make it appear seamless. Watch the video above to see what Kelley does!
