I’ve been working on a few hats to be ready for when the weather turns, and I’m so excited to share them with you today.
Each one has something unique to it, whether it’s lacework, brambles, cabling, or simple knits and purls.
The Arosa Slouchy Lace Hat was inspired by the flames and the smoke you’re bewitched by when you’re sitting around a bonfire in the fall. I wanted to capture that sweeping feeling in a hat. It has a slight slouch to it.
The Wild Bramble Hat is such a fun, textured hat. It features vertical stripes, converging at the crown. In between the stripes are brambles, stars, little bumps that are quick and easy to make.
The Adirondack Basket Hat is a series of interweaving cable stitches, separated by stripes. It’s more fitted and because of the thickness of the cables, it seems much warmer.
The Chutes and Ladders Hat is super fun. I was playing around with various striping patterns when I settled on this one – and it looks like little ladders! The ladders and stripes converge at the top and a giant pompom is in the center. (I think you should make it even bigger!)
1 skein of Lion’s Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Yarn
DPNs, size varies between US size 11-15 depending on hat
EVEN MORE FUN is this: I’m going to do a Knit Along for one of the hats!
