January 2021 - pattern has been reknit in Julie Asselin’s new Douillet yarn, as Ankara is no longer available. Sizes have been added and the pattern has been updated overall.

When life gives you 6 feet of snow in 14 days, make a hat.

It made me so happy to work on this hat between bouts of shoveling. It’s quick and easy - so knitting it during the storm meant that it was ready to wear the next day out in the snow.

Staying with the winter theme, I used Barbara Walker’s Snowflake Lace - just detailed enough to pop in the bulky yarn. I paired the lace with a deep brim, some simple crown shaping and about 2 hours next to the fire.
