From the magazine: This perky hat came about for a class that Maureen Mason-Jamieson teaches on finishing details. She deliberately included bobbles in the garter-stitch border to call attention to the way the hat frames the face because, she says, “knitters have wonderful faces… Passion for their craft shines through their eyes.” Knitted in the round, the body of the cap is worked in a simple variation of a twisted-rib pattern and the crown is shaped with stacked decreases in four sections. At the peak, the remaining stitches become I-cords for knitted bobbles in the adult version, or a neat little topknot in the child’s. This hat may look especially good on knitters, but we think it will make the most of everyone’s features.
The adult version is knit in 1 skein of Soft Touch Ultra on size 3 and 4 needles and the child version is knit in 1 skein of Soft Touch DK on size 2 and 3 needles.
Also available for purchase as a pamphlet called Be-Bobble-Ooh-Lah Hat from Shelridge Farm.
