FO Friday: My Mountain contest, sample 2

Posted by Underground Crafter on August 16, 2013 | Short Link

I finished my second design (also knit) for the My Mountain design contest last weekend.  This week has been crazy so I wasn’t able to get MC to take one of his amazing pictures.  You’ll have to settle for me with the self-timer or arms stretched out :).

This one is made with Schachenmayr My Mountain Lumio in Capri and Lime (called Iris and Chartreuse originally).

I wanted to make this hat highly textured so I alternated between a cable pattern and a diagonal knit and purl pattern.

It was fun working with these bright colors.  Recently, I’ve been working with some very subdued colors, so having something vibrant to play with was great.

I also love the yarn.  It’s got a nice feeling – soft and squishy, but firm enough to hold it’s shape for texture.

I couldn’t decide if I preferred the blue or green cable in the front, so I tried it a few different ways.

I still have yarn for two more hats.

Any suggestions for a name for this design?
