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.
Hope you have a great week!
