No idea what's the weather like in your neck of the woods, but over here spring is hardly in sight. For the past few days we've had really nasty wind, so definitely still a good idea to wear a hat when spending some time outdoors. And if you haven't got one, here's a quick yet stylish new hat pattern of mine, released in issue 71 of Knit Now: Speckle Hat.
The hat is knitted in the round from the brim up, mainly in a simple yet beautiful knit and purl pattern. The main feature is a wide cable, which gets smaller and disappears towards the top.
The yarn, Sublime Yarns Sophia, is a bamboo, merino and silk blend and it is oh-so-soft and wonderful to work with. Knitted in a colourway as shown, which is called Pewter, the hat is classy and elegant and is suitable for men and women alike.
