Beginning on November 30, Small Business Saturday in the U.S., the Cloudline Hat digital pattern is free with minimum yarn purchase (two skeins of Peerie) at participating LYS Brooklyn Tweed stockists.

BT by Brooklyn Tweed patterns are skill-accessible knitting patterns written in a concise, visually appealing way. Spanning just four pages, each BT by Brooklyn Tweed pattern offers an entry point into the larger world of Brooklyn Tweed yarns and patterns.

With Cloudline we challenged ourselves to design the perfect “first hat” pattern for a new knitter while also creating an appealing project for seasoned knitters as well. This hat is knit using only basic techniques: the knit stitch, the purl stitch, and the knit-2-together decrease and is the perfect project for practicing circular knitting (or for whipping up last-minute gifts!).

Cloudline’s bi-colored marl fabric is created by holding two strands of fingering-weight Peerie together as you knit. With 45 colors to mix and match, hundreds of striking fabrics can be created, allowing for endless variations and a finished look that’s uniquely your own. We’ve found the colorplay aspect of the pattern to be quite addicting, and we can’t wait to see which unexpected combinations will become new favorites!

The finished hat is fully reversible, featuring a distinctively different look on each side. The RS stockinette fabric works up in a random color-pooling pattern with a slightly pixelated feel that evokes abstracted clouds on the horizon. The WS reverse stockinette fabric mixed colors result in a softer, more painterly effect. Wear with pride whichever side! Knit in Peerie’s plump merino, Cloudline brings all the warmth you covet in a hat, with the coziness to make it a year-round staple.
