Hooray...number 1 of patterns-for-sale is now up and running. Allow me to introduce you to Phoncible:








You can also see a tester's terribly attractive (slightly more subtly colored) version here, just in case you're not the rainbow-hat-wearing kind of person.


The pattern is available for purchase at my etsy shop.

  3. Hey love the pattern! I just bought 2 skeins of Kureyon in blues and greens! Just wondering - did you use 6's and 7's? or 7's and 8's? Your pattern says just US 7's. I'm not big into gauge swatches for non-sweaters, so please let me know! Thanks!!!

  4. I used only 7's, but my gauge naturally changed when I was no longer doing stranded colorwork (in the brim). Unfortunately this change in gauge is kind of crucial to the shape of the hat...if you're not into swatching, I'd say start with 7's, and then if it doesn't change enough when you get to the horizontal stripes, rip back and do that part with 8's. But swatching is probably easier.

  5. Alexandra,
    I fell in love with the pattern "Phoncible Hat" and purchased it. I can't find the two colorways that were used in the picture. Everyone seems to be out of it or say that they are discontinued colors. Could you please give me some other ideas of color combinations of Noro yarns that could be used? The colors used were absolutely the "right" colors I was wanting to use. Thanks for any ideas that you might have.

    1. At least one of them is discontinued, sadly :-( I haven't seen the full line of current Noro colorways in years, but here's the projects for Phoncible, maybe you'll see something that inspires you?

      There are a few other brands that do the slow color change thing, too- I know Wisdom yarns does, and Crystal Palace Mochi. If you want a similar effect to this hat, I would look for two colorways that have approximately the same colors in the same order (in this case, a rainbow order with pinks) but with one darker than the other.
