You can never have to many hats, beanies or toques. So, I wanted to include two hat patterns in The Girl Who Said Baa.
What: Alma / Own pattern
How: Circular needle 3.0 mm
From: Tukuwool Fingering, 48 g
I wanted to keep this design simple. Mostly stockinette, some cables to keep the knitting interesting, and finally, a fun envelope bind-off which I learned while working on another hat pattern, Hiekkamyrsky.
The cute little cable travels along the hat on both sides at the same spot and the cables meet at the top with the bind-off.
When working an envelope bind-off, you'll want to make sure you work enough hight for the hat because the bind-off takes a good chunk of it. The pattern includes detailed instructions for the bind-off as well as a picture tutorial for making the folds.
I for one can't get enough of this amazing green color, Selja, of Tukuwool. It's the perfect green. You can also find it in the i-cord details and the pockets of Manta cardigan. Perhaps I should knit an entire cardigan in it?
