Make ‘em go Ah, Ah, Ah!
This DK-weight hat features a quilted, slip stitch hat (no stranding!) worked in a pattern that resembles a large chrysanthemum-style firework at the crown—it’s engineered perfectly to pack in all the Ooos & Ahs without the boom! that terrifies the neighborhood pups.

The pattern is especially terrific for showing off a variegated colorway as the CC and is designed especially for Miss Babs’ Yarns new Rhinebeck 2022 colorway to be released on Saturday, October 15, 2022. The colorway is a SECRET prior to this date, so purchasers of the pattern will only get to see pics of other semi-solid versions of the hat.

Once the Rhinebeck 2022 color is revealed, I’ll update the pattern with new photos showing off the colorway--it’s SUPER PRETTY, and I know you’re gonna love it:)

The crown decreases are engineered to serve as the floral center of the firework “bloom” as the slip stitches cascade like a sparkler.

The pattern is both charted and written out, line by line, and also includes a table showing you what size hat you can make at 2 additional gauges (in case you want to use worsted weight, etc…)

sizes sm(med, lg) require: 1 skein EACH of Miss Babs Yowza Minis (199 yds/80 g) in the Main color (MC, shown in Espresso), and in the Contrasting Color (CC, shown in Old Gold), or
approximately 110(125, 145) yds of the MC and 45(50, 60) yds of the CC in heavy DK/light worsted weight yarn

You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine.
