Modification Monday: Flowers for Gnomes Hat
Original Pattern: Selbu Modern
Knitter Extraordinaire: Dana (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Turned the pretty 2-colour fair isle tam into a a 5-colour fair isle slouchy hat, substituting the original design for vintage colour work charts for a totally new look. Details can be found on her project page, including the very cool link to the vintage colour work charts, can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: Talk about really making a go of colour work! I love the new charts that Dana substituted, they are so pretty and fresh. And going from 2 colours to 5 colours takes a lot of planning and foresight, and this hat is all the more beautiful for it. I love the slouchy take on the pattern!
