Quest for a Hat?
On a Quest for a Hat? Look no further... here is a new design of mine that has just gone live on Knitty!
I am particularly in love with the shaping of this hat. Worked from the top down short rows make the front of the hat longer than the back so that the top of the hat sits at the back of the head. I never knew it but it turns out that this is a very flattering style for me....
A little treat for you: I learned a new cast on for this design that always stumped me in the past and decided to make my first video to teach you how to work it too. Since the hat starts with 8 sts cast on in the round using a circular or disappearing loop cast on is an easy way to get started... sit down with a cup of tea and give it a try!
Thanks to Juan Aceves for the great photo at the top, with the full moon and Hudson river in the background.... but that's a story for another post!
