The Bellfield Hat makes a great second stranded colourwork project that will stretch your skills. It’s worked bottomup with a cosy folded brim and enough slouchy length to pull down over your ears. The contrast colour cast-on is worked using what might become your new favourite cast on for ribbing: an alternating cable cast on. Working bottom-up means you can begin the colourwork comfortably on a 16 or 20" needle and switch to double pointed needles or magic loop once you’ve established your tension.



In comparison to the first pattern in the Colourwork Club, the Brunstane Cowl, the colourwork in Bellfield is a little more challenging: the pattern repeat is larger, so you might have to focus on the chart more; there are slightly longer floats of 6, and on one round 7 sts; and the crown shaping is incorporated into the colourwork. There’s also a large section in the middle of a very simple repeating pattern, in which only alternate rounds are stranded, so you’ll have a chance to relax. That snowflake crown is totally worth the effort! Whether you add a pom-pom is completely up to you.
