Another gift I made for my partner in the Christmas swap was this hat with a snowflake motif.
The pattern is Double Feature Hat by Virpi Tarvo and it is availabe through Ravelry, here. The hat is knit in double knit technique. I really enjoy this technique that creates two right sides at the same time, but this was the first time I went for the 'extreme' form with different motifs on both sides. It requires a bit more concentration and in the beginning I found it a bit tricky to get the tension of the floats right. Well, as it is with any new technique you try. However, I am really pleased with the finished piece and I'm sure I'll knit another project using the 'extreme' form of the technique very soon.
