We have a winner for the copy of Alice Starmore’s Glamourie… Sarah! I’ll be emailing you very soon!
Knitter Extraordinaire: Spotonknit (Ravelry ID)
Mods: Spotonknit created a hat that incorporated the same stranded elements as her Marius sweater yoke, using a worsted weight hat pattern as a starting point, and converting it to DK weight. Details can be found on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: A gorgeous stranded yoke, like the classic style of the Marius sweater, has all kinds of fantastic elements that would work great on a hat. The comparison photo below shows this really clearly, since it’s helpful to view them side-by-side. For any mod that was using a sweater yoke and turning it into a hat, the best way is to start with the largest motif to use as the central band in the hat, and then flank it (top and bottom!) with smaller elements from the same yoke. This idea can be used over and over again, regardless of the design on the sweater yoke. What amazing sweater yoke would YOU turn into a hat?
