I have never really seen a pattern that was beyond my skill and wanted it. I usually like simple patterns and shapes. That was until I saw the Polar Bear Chullo in the Twist Collective magazine. (D*mn you Twist Collective!) I have now become obsessed with that hat and already have a list of KP Palette yarns that I can substitute for the pricier Shetland yarn the pattern calls for.
Problem is that I have never knit anything with stranded colorwork or with an i-cord edging. But I am really thinking I should just order the yarn, buy the pattern, and jump in or I am going to start dreaming about Polar bears!
