Jasper My Love

I just can't stop knitting hats with Berroco Jasper yarn. I'm hooked. It's so soft, knits up so quickly and stripes so beautifully! I started with the red Amanda Hat which you see modeled by the actual Amanda. I liked it so much that I made another one in blue. I did modify it a bit as I felt that if I followed the pattern the hat would be too long so rather than do 3 full repeats of the lace pattern in the second section of the hat I only did 1 and one-half.

After those two I went back and bought some of the black colorway and made a Black Jack Hat (pattern to be posted soon) which is for the Little Man since I didn't think he'd like the fancy lace stitch! After that I just HAD to make a Black Jack Hat for my nephew so I chose the brown colorway to go with his blonde, blonde hair. I think the boys will love being twins. Now what shall I make with it?

The hats are all gorgeous. I'm still wondering how you manage to wear so many hats there in California...... I think I may need to buy some of that yarn...it looks yummy.

Those hats are great. I agree with you this is the perfect amount of self striping for a hat. Great colors too.

The hats look wonderful. I have not tried that yarn yet, but just may have too. I was wondering the same thing as Janice, about the hats and California

Beautiful hats! That's lovely yarn! I must be choosing the wrong Berroco yarns, cuz I'm not terribly thrilled about anything I've picked up in the past.

What fun! You're like an advertisement for Berroco. I love the hats. Is the yarn as soft as it looks?

Can you share the pattern for your hat? I love the Amanda hat, and I just bought some Jasper, but haven't found any good patterns for hats.
