#867 Transform it into a different item. ~ Unique knit caps using German yarn balls ~

Knit caps on a TV program

Recently I watched a NHK TV program called “At Home with Venetia in Kyoto.” I was very interested in these beautiful knit caps that were made by Umemura Martina on TV.

I found the same knit caps.


Fortunately, I could find the same knit caps at Takashimaya department store the next day. It was available for a limited time at a small booth. At first, I was supposed to be just looking but I couldn’t stop myself from buying a knit cap because of its attractive design.

A waist warmer or a knit cap?

The knit cap’s shape was cylindrical and looked like a waist warmer that had two kinds of weaving patterns.

How does it become a cap from a waist warmer?

First, turn it over and twist the middle part. Then hold the twisted part with one hand and fold one side of the warmer onto the other side to make it into a cap. Thanks to the two wearing patterns, the cap can be reversed and show a totally different design. These knitted items were very unique.

Colorful yarn balls from Germany

The booth had many colorful yarn balls. Since each yarn ball already had unique design, when you make a knit cap, you just need to knit one ball.

“What kind of pattern will come out?” Some people may think of this when knitting it.

These knit balls were made in Germany. Umemura Martina, a German lady, teaches people how to knit and sells German knit balls named “Opal”.
You can turn the knit cap into a neck warmer, too.

It was very warm when I went out in this cold winter.

いいね (^_-)-☆
こういうカラフルなものに弱いのよ。
つい買いたくなっちゃう。
毛糸の色も、いろんな色が混じって、いいなぁ。
Opalの毛糸って、洗濯機で洗えるってホント?
高島屋で売ってるななんて、やっぱりお高いんでしょ?

洗濯機で洗えるって知らなかった!
情報ありがとう♪

値段は5000円くらいでした。
デパートで売っていてもオンライン価格と同様のようです。

yokoさん、編み物得意でしたね。
編み方を動画で公開していますので、腹巻き帽子作ってみてください。
yokoさんならチョチョっとできてしまいそう。
私にはムリ。

洗濯、エマールで、洗濯機は『手洗いコース』で洗ったほうがいいと思うよ。

3Dジェルボールでもやってみます。
アドバイスありがとうございます♪
