We Call Them Pirates

Yarns : 1 x 50g Jaegar Extra Fine Merino DK in Black,
1/2 x 50g Katia Bamboo in Sweet Candy Pink
Needle size : 3.5mm/4mm
This is my first trial on colour-work project! When i first saw this pattern from ravelry somewhere last year, i noticed that most of the FOs were done in black and white combi, so i have been thinking hard on what colour combi should i do for this hat.
I have quite a number of colour choices for this pattern in acrylic, but thinking of the hard work, i decided not to knit with acrylic and cast on with a better yarn - Jaegar Extra Fine Merino in DK weight!
I’ve modified the pattern by no lining and do ribbing instead and added the heart shape between the skulls and and a bigger heart shape on top of each section too.

Although not a fan of pink colour since young, but guess this sweet candy pink from Katia Bamboo does bring out the charm of this hat! Loving it :D

WOW! 好細的工喔! I'm not a fan of colorworks (although I really like to try it) because I tend to pull the yarn too tight and the motifs would look wrinkled...any suggestions on that?

What a great modification! I like what you did... I did my first one in black and white, but then the next was green shades.

The hat looks great! I love the mods you made. I'm not a big fan of pink myself, but it looks nice here. :)
