The Juniper collection includes socks, a cowl, a hat and mitts. I chose this specific yarn because it’s one of the softest, squishiest yarns that I’ve ever had the pleasure to knit with and it feels divine against my skin. Also this bluish/purple that Nicole (the dyer at Spinnacle) created, really reminds me of the juniper berries that were on the juniper bushes outside of our house when I was growing up.

Juniper hat is worked from the brim up and starts with a generously wide ribbed brim that can be worn folded or not , depending on your preference and the windchill factor. The stitch pattern is easily memorized and pretty to look at. This is a stretchy stitch pattern and you might consider making a circumference up to 3 inches/7.6 centimetres smaller than the wearer’s actual head circumference.

Instructions are included for 5 sizes. The pattern stitch is both written and charted.
