I knitted my first Christopher in cabernet and camel, but I knew instantly that many more would be on my needles again. This time, I wanted to knit one for Xavier and in blue tones.
My go to yarn for this pattern is Cascade 220, not only because it knits up a dense but supple fabric -- it's also because the color choices are so fabulous.
When I last posted about this beanie, I asked for color combination suggestions and some of you had some great ideas. I especially liked goodpurlgonebad's suggestion of ice blue and orange and kiwiyarn's color combinations of pumpkin and brown (and Eric's yellow, orange, and purple). When I'm in the mood to knit up another one of these beanies, I think I'll consider these great color ideas.
