chanel inspiration

Now that winter is slowly turning into spring and all the sweaters, blankets and mittens have been made, or your WIP pile got a bit bigger,  we can start planning our to-make list for spring.

Spring Beanies are a thing this season as you can see in the 2015  Chanel spring collection.

Look how cute!

I’m not sure how many South-Africans will wear a beany in spring since it is really warm here, but I cannot describe how cool these are to me and I decided to spend my Sunday making a beany a-la-Chanel.

I liked the random way the colours played with each other and the little plastic flowers are just so cute!

I couldn’t go to a yarn shop to buy wool for the project…. it was  Sunday and the shops are closed… so I had to use what I had.

I used 3 different yarns and I found some romantic pink tulle in my fabric stash that I cut into long strips so I could knit with it.

I just knitted in the round with my biggest needles and also didn’t follow any plan.

The tulle and some beads that i found in an old tin was used to make the flowers.

I love to have fun like this and now Amber, my daughter, has another beany for her collection.amber in beany

Hope you have a great week!

love from Elsbeth
