The Knitted Hat Book

Interweave has just published a lovely new collection of hats in The Knitted Hat Book, and my pattern for the Scoop Brimmed Hat is included in the collection! I wanted to design a hat that worked for transitional weather too, so I chose an allover mesh stitch pattern that’s simple to knit. It’s a great hat to spring and fall, when some of us still want to wear a hat. This hat just 1 lovely skein of Dream in Color Classy with Cashmere, which is ridiculously soft and beautiful, and worth every cent.

Helga is a tunic-length pullover with a hood and pockets, because what’s cozier than that? It uses 2 strands of Chickadee, held together, for a beautiful marled look and a heavy-worsted gauge (4.25 sts/inch) that makes it quick-to-knit!
