When I was designing Mizzlin I wanted make something that would be the perfect project for knitters who are new to colour work, but would also be a fun project for more advanced crafters! Knit in the round, the majority of the colour work is knit in the body with simple decreasing at the crown, and finished with a contrasting pom pom.
Also included in this pattern is information and advice on how I approach colour work, including helping get your tension right, choosing your yarn, holding your yarn and swatching in the round, complete with photos.
This pattern has been test knit.
Thank you again and happy knitting!
