Proto-Lola: September's Lola's Choice Kit!

I think most of the kits have landed so I can share September's Lola's Choice Kit with you all...

Introducing Proto-Lola!

I decided to depart from the smaller delicate beaded pieces I had been designing for Lola's Choice and make a hat for fall. Lola told me she needed one... with her logo on it!

I used Berroco Catena with Alafoss Lettlopi for this design... I adore Lettlopi but it is a wee bit too "toothy" for hats for me. I realized if I used Catena (which is a chainette construction and SUPER soft) for the brim I could have a hat that is warm, soft and light. I've used both these yarns for Leio and when I did some colorwork with my leftovers I knew they were going to work together perfectly!  I did design the hat so if you want to skip the logo and just have the colorwork "star" go all the way around the hat it is easy to do. And those leather tags were just the finishing touch!

 

My photographer Jamie, is deep into senior portrait season, and Lola decided she wanted her photos to simulate that back to school mood... how did we do? 48 is the new 18, am I right?


It has been super fun to see how others are modifying their Proto-Lola's! Green Tops, Tassles, and extra colorwork! Fun, right

Finally, I did announce a little QUICKIE KAL in my Ravelry group... it was Lola's idea (of course it was!) All you have to do is finish your Proto-Lola by September 30th... (there is a charity component as well).

I do have a few kits for Proto-Lola left, so if you sign up for Lola's Choice now, you'll start with this kit!

xoxo, Lola
