WIP Wednesday: Striped Broncos Beanie

Work In Progress Wednesday, August 6

When I was yarn shopping at Michaels, I came across Loops and Threads Charisma yarn in Nordic, and it screamed Broncos! Since the 2014 NFL season is just about under way, I thought it was a good time to test out this variegated (color-changing) yarn and see if it looked as good in a beanie as it did in the skein.

And, I think the (almost) end result looks great! I have only one stitch to go to finish, so this WIP will be an FO (finished object) in about 2 minutes.

I like how the stripes are so random and interesting. It clearly has the broncos colors of orange and blue, but also weaves in neutral gray and brown. Plus, I noticed that the brown is exactly the color of a football. Perfect!

Here's a close up view for you to see the striping a little better.

I love working with variegated yarn. Watching the colors change is so much fun. So, if you'd like to make this hat yourself, stay tuned shortly for the pattern! I will be releasing it in the next week or so since I am oh so close to finishing this hat. Go Broncos?
