Sage Yarn

I’m really excited to be teaching my latest hat pattern, Rocky Peak Ridge, at Sage this coming Sunday!  I love color knitting of all kinds — striped, stranded, intarsia, mosaic — but there’s something so satisfying about working a stranded pattern using two colors, one in each hand.  This hat features quick color changes and easy-to-memorize pattern repeats, perfect for practicing knitting with both hands.

It’s also a fun one for playing with color dominance, as the background color changes with each pattern band.  See how it alternates as the hat progresses from brim to crown?  Keeping the background color in the right hand allows the “pattern” color to POP!  Try changing your yarn position with each band and see what happens — the shift is subtle, but definitely noticeable!  We’ll talk about yarn dominance and more on Sunday.  Won’t you join us?  Check out the full details below!
