Rhapsody in Blue

Just finished another Coat and hat set. I used a previous  pattern and modified it for a baby boy.

In the past I’ve never been a great fan of the self striping or variegated yarns. Even though they come in beautiful colour combinations I’ve never been happy with the random way they knit up, sometimes giving and uneven look to the garment.  Anyway I had the idea of using a matching single colour to both break up and complement the stripey yarn. I think it has worked well, and along with the contrasting stocking stitch and double moss stitch I was pleased with the result.

So pleased with the result that I’ve stocked up on some more of these multi-coloured yarns!
