PROJECT Classic Ribbed Hat

Classic Ribbed Hat

We just finished this easy Classic Ribbed Hat, and I’m really pleased with how it turned out. The pattern was a freebie, so yay! We used a single skein of Diamond Baby Alpaca Sport, which is a BULKY weight, supremely soft 100% baby alpaca, and it feels marvellous! We used 5.5mm/US9 needles, so the tension is tight and the fabric will hopefully be a bit on the dense side, and more Canadian winter friendly. I kinda really like the colour, sometimes pinks and purples can be so surprising. And of course, we topped the whole thing off with a Raccoon Fur Pompom – I think they add a little polish and finish the look. I think it makes a beautiful, personal holiday gift (and it works up fairly quickly, so you can get it done in time).

Modifications

I wasn’t sure about the sizing, so we cast on for the child side to fit an adult S/M, and then followed the instructions for the adult size. We also did an extra round of decreases at the end, to make the top more manageable to close. We always try to write out mods in the project notes on Ravelry.

FREEBIE Cabled Hat

Cabled Hat

This free pattern for a cabled hat demonstrated that beautiful, stylish, on-trend garments don’t have to be expensive. This hat is made with one skein of worsted weight yarn – economical Cascade 220 (or sub Cascade 220 Superwash, superwash blend Berroco Vintage, superwash merino Malabrigo Rios, or buttery soft Malabrigo Worsted).

big furry pompom kind of makes the hat ‘pop’ – we sell both synthetic and real pompoms in our bricks & mortar store and in our online store (I like the Raccoon the best for this style, they’re light and airy).

Yarn Options

Cascade 220: 1 skein

Cascade 220 Superwash: 1 skein
