There are a few things that I go back to time and time again, patterns are no exception. I have favourite patterns and I though I’s share them this week.
Today its hats, or rather THE HAT. There’s only one hat pattern, as far as I’m concerned.
It’s by Krista, over at rescued paws designs, it’s called Autumn is here. You can find the pattern here
What I love about this pattern is that once you get the knack of the stitch, its easy peasy. Its quite a forgiving hat, once its finished. I’ve hidden many a bad hair day under one of these beauties and they’ve done me proud.
It’s a very tactile hat and I can’t have enough of them. I’m already planning a magenta one and perhaps a stripey if I get the time. I made these out of Drops Lima DK, a scrumptious wool/alpaca mix. It’s super cosy, which is ideal for the windy, chilly days. The ribbing on the brim keeps the hat in place but the body is quite relaxed, not slouchy relaxed, just enough for you not to worry about helmet head!
So, if you’re looking for a great hat, here it is. Get crocheting, cos you’re not getting mine 😉
