Pattern Details

This pretty hat in three sizes (S/M/L) is unusual for both its texture and fabric. It provides a luxuriously warm brim with a lighter weight top that won’t crush your hair. The stitch pattern—which resembles a popcorn stitch—requires much less fuss than you’d think. The fabric derives its soft and slinky drape from pairing two vastly different yarns—one that is thick, lush, and springy with one that is thin, slick, and silky. Two needle sizes are recommended for maximum effect, but if you find that too fiddly, use one in between size. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, and yarn requirement. Finished Size: 17(19.5, 22) inches in brim circumference to fit heads measuring up to 19.5(22, 24) inches Gauge: 21 sts and 32 rows = 4 inches in stockinette on smaller needle in fingering yarn (unblocked)

I am the owner of Knitspot - knitting patterns, clubs, and artisan yarns. I am a life-long knitter with a background in the fashion and graphic design fields, and began designing clothing, knitwear and accessories during the 1970s. I teach and write about knitting, spinning, and designing at my blog, Knitspot. I live and work in Ohio with David, who loves wool, too. My design work/profile has been included in Knitty, The Knitter, Interweave Knits, and Twist Collective, Sock Club, Brave New Knits, as well as several upcoming publications. The complete catalog of Knitspot patterns is available for browsing and purchasing at http://www.knitspot.com/knitting_pattern/index.php Knitspot yarn clubs are reknowned for perfect pairings of luxury yarn and design, as well as the rollicking good fun in our Ravelry clubhouse where members meet, chat, and knit through club projects together. http://www.knitspot.com/clubs/index.html Our Bare Naked yarns are as close to the farm as a knitter can get, using fresh fiber produce from regional growers which is then spun into yarn at smaller artisan mills with which I have worked over the years. The collection is focused on single-breed pure wool yarns and exotic blends, with colors that range an entire array of natural tones—yarn the way nature made it. http://knitspot.com/knitting_pattern/yarn-c-21.html
