Thither adv to or toward that place

This is a companion to Hither and Yon (the cuffs and cowl in the pictures at the bottom of this page), and you can buy all three patterns together for a discount. The price for the set is $16.00 (that’s a savings of $8.00 off the price of the individual patterns, like getting one of the patterns free).

If you put all three patterns in your cart together, you’ll see the price reduced to $16.00 (you don’t need a code, it happens automatically).

And don’t worry! If you’ve already bought one of the other pieces, whatever you spent on them will be counted towards the price of the set (as long as you’re logged into the same ravelry account when you make both purchases).

Half the fun of being a knitter is having the very cutest sets of cool weather accessories, right? So when I finished the leafy cuffs, it was only natural I’d make a hat to go with them!

The same beautiful lacy leaves run up the side of this hat. But hats don’t have quite as many curves and bends to contend with as cuffs, so the background here is stockinette instead of ribbing. The leaves finish up nicely and are followed by some tidy decreases (to keep everything centered and all the focus on the pretty lace). The result is a project that’s quick, cute, and a perfect to pair with the cuffs!

The hat is written in three sizes each (castons of 98, 106, and 114 stitches), and you should feel free to adjust your gauge a bit to fine tune the fit of the pieces. Just be sure that you’re working at a gauge that gives you a fabric you like with your chosen yarn!

I recommend working at something around 5, 5.5, or 6 stitches per inch, and I’ve included a table to help you figure out what gauge you’ll want to use for your size. With that range of sizes and gauges, the hats will fit a head between 18.75 and 26.25 inches (with lots of points in between). My hat took about 175 yards of yarn, and you can almost certainly make any size with 225 yards or less.

These are perfect for you if:

  • You’re as taken with knitted leaves as I am
  • You want a mellow project that looks impressive when you’re done
  • You know in your heart of hearts that accessories are better in sets

They’re not for you if:

  • You don’t like charts (the pattern uses charts)
  • You hate swatching (you need to swatch to check your needle size)
