Scout Collection: Ballard

A Chinese American woman in a modern plant store wearing Ballard, a hand knit color work beanie in Kelbourne Woolens Scout in natural and navy heather.

Ballard, the second hat in the Scout Collection, is the perfect design for practicing stranded knitting or if you want to play around with color. The design is a mix of classic Setesdal patterns, and no float is longer than three stitches, so each round is easy to memorize.

The sample worked up super quickly, so it would be a great weekend or in-between project, or a starter if you’re looking to do something bigger like Rainier. As an additional bonus, there is plenty of yardage in two skeins of Scout to knit a second version of Ballard by reversing the MC and CC (like Jen is doing!)
