The Watercolour Hat and Scarf Set

This is my newest design for the lovely people over at Cygnet Yarns.

I’ll come clean, and say I’ve had this set as a WIP for a long long time!

For this design – I’ve used their Watercolour yarn.

Cygnet watercolour yarn

This is a great DK weight yarn, that changes colour on it’s own (meaning only a few ends to sew in).

Rainbow Lake watercolour yarn

Rainbow Lake was the colour I chose.

But I wanted this design to be a little different.

Stitch choice can make a huge difference, as can yarns.

Using 2 different strands of yarn can give a completely different effect.

How to choose yarn for a crochet design

So I had a little play – this will give you a little insight into how I decide what I’m making.

So this was attempt one. Normal US Double crochets and the watercolour yarn paired with a white DK.

Attempt 2, Watercolour paired with a dark grey, DC’s again.

Just watercolour yarn.

Then the top one, a lighter grey, still DC”s but you can see the colours nicely.

These were my swatches, before I even started the project.

From these I made the decision to pair the yarn with the lighter grey.

I went with a completely different stitch too! Any guesses which one?

Then I just kind of went for it!

And only 18 months after I started it – I finished it!

I love the way the yarn changes colour so gradually, so it’s mellow.
