When I was knitting my Daisy Hat and Daisy Mittens I had quite a few people volunteer to test knit for me. It’s always fun for me to see what other people do with the pattern, and with this one I find that the colour possibilities intriguing!
I started out with typical daisies for my mittens:
Then when it came to the hat, I had this lovely golden yarn & the flowers are more like black-eyed Susans.
Francine wanted to make mittens, and hers are poppy mittens:
Nicole’s making red-on-red mittens:
Michelle did not like the idea of duplicate stitching the flower middles, so she went with beads:
Anja made a reversible double knit hat with colour-changing yarn:
Karin made a hat with vibrant colours that I wouldn’t have thought of putting together, but it works wonderfully. I guess that’s not a real surprise when you look at the Pretty String she’s been making!
There are other daisy variations on the go. On my end watching them get completed is like planting seeds without knowing what they are and waiting to see what grows!
