With temperatures well above 30°C ist seems unbelievable but
we're inching closer towards autumn here in the northern hemisphere - so it might be a good idea to start a knitting project for the cooler season. And to make knitting fun even though it's so
hot, what would be better than a small one skein project like a hat? My suggestion: Autumn Foliage Hat, a brandnew pattern of mine in the newest issue of Knit Now magazine.
The hat uses an interesting stitch pattern and variegated yarn to great effect. It is knitted in the round from the brim to the top. The brim is worked in 2x2 ribbing, the body of the hat is worked using a textured pattern with short-rows to create wavy lines. The pattern enhances gradient yarns or yarns changing colours in long segments like Scheepjes Wanderlust.
Worked in a heavy weight yarn, the hat is a quick knit and for me the pattern truly is a 'just one more round' pattern, because it is so fun to see the pattern develop in a gradient yarn.
The pattern for Autumn Foliage Hat is inclued in Knit Now, issue 145, now available from stores all over the UK and also online, for example from Craft Stash.
