About the Design:
The Capriciously Chic hat is another pattern that I designed as part of the second collection of Chic Sheep yarn. Although I designed it with two colors that are close together to give a two-tone look you can pick any two of your favorite colors. Try out your school colors, or favorite sports team, pick something that has a high contrast or one color for a subtle look all over. You have 24 colors of Chic Sheep by Marly Bird™ to choose from, try making one in a few options.
Designed to start at the brim I switched up it a little and worked a twisted rib brim. In this video tutorial you will learn how to work the honeycomb cable with fair isle colorwork.
About Chic Sheep:
Having my own yarn line has always been my dream. When Red Heart gave me the opportunity for that dream to come true I was elated. Now that I have my dream I love seeing all of the beautiful creations my designer friends are creating.
Chic Sheep by Marly Bird™ is a 100% merino wool. With 186 yards per ball and 24 colors there are many things that you can create. I have designed this yarn from the ground up with the awesome team at Red Heart. I hand selected the color pallet and made sure to pick a yarn base that you wouldn’t want to put down.
Being 100% merino wool means that it is machine washable and dryer safe! Not only is it easy to maintain but it is an absolute dream to use in accessories and garments. Having this yarn snuggled up against your skin feels so good.
