For this hat, I wanted to knit something that would be pretty and warm, and would also be capable of fitting all of my hair into it when the weather takes a turn for the worst without wrecking my hair for the rest of the day. Any of you girls out there with curly hair know what I’m talking about, and this hat is for you! (I’m happy to say that after field-testing this in New England winter weather, it’s just what I hoped it would be.)
The pattern offers two sizes, two different depths, and one-color textural striping or two-color striping. It is worked in the round, and uses “bulls-eye” decreases to accentuate the Fibonacci striping. The hat uses two 50g balls of Berroco Blackstone Tweed, or any aran weight yarn of at least 130yds. consider using Techknitting’s Jogless Jog for smooth color transitions when knitting stripes in the round.
The pattern is available for individually sale, and as part of collection (including the mittens and cowl) in e-book format. If you already purchased the individual pattern, and would like to purchase the e-book, the price of this pattern will be deducted from the cost of the collection during checkout.
