Get Crabby!

May 28, 2014

Summer doesn’t have to mean putting your knitting away for the season! Small projects are a great way to keep your hands busy, and Wendy Bernard’s Crabby Cap offers you two versions to knit in your choice of Spud & Chloë Sweater or Fine yarns. The worsted-weight version (shown below, left) is a great introduction to colorwork, since you’ll just be using two colors in our Sweater yarn. If you’re up for a challenge, cast on for a beanie-style chapeau in sock-weight Fine (shown below, right).

Which colors will you choose for your Crabby Cap? Our models above are wearing Waterslide #7519 (MC) and Life Jacket #7528 (CC) in Sweater and Dachshund #7803 (MC), Lizard #7812 (CC) and Clementine #7802 (CC) in Fine. Pictured below is another fun color combination in Fine:

We’ve been admiring these color palettes inspired by Wes Anderson movies on pinterest, and they’ve inspired us to put together a few more color suggestions for the Crabby Cap:
