It’s (almost) time for the fall Knit Along!

This KAL’s voting was actually the closest I’ve ever seen it, but the Adirondack Basket Hat came out ahead by just a few votes!

Adirondack Basket Hat

So let’s check it out:

It does have cables, so if you’re new to cable knitting, get excited and ready to learn, but I especially love these cables because they’re not traditional. They’re really more of a basketweave pattern (hence the name), and so I think it’s a bit more fun to knit.

The pattern is broken up by simply columns that connect at the top so it would be perfect for a pom pom on top. We can make our own with matching yarn or you get one of those nifty fur balls that are all the rage.

Also, the hat is fitted and it’s one size fits most. If you’re a bit worried about that or you’re looking for a bit more relaxed fit, leave a comment and let me know and we’ll figure it out!

    I’m really excited about this! I just signed up last minute. Haha. I’m one of those with a big head and I would prefer mine a little more relaxed. Thanks bunches!

      Hey Cassie,

      If you’re looking to make your bigger, I would only add in an extra 3 stitches – at the beginning of the repeat where it’s k2, p1, etc – I’d change that to k3, p1, etc. Because it’s super bulky yarn, that little extra bit will help you have a more relaxed fit. Nothing too crazy needs to happen! 🙂
