|Malabrigo Yarns Chunky, colorways Mariposa and Bobby Blue|
Well, I decided to write up the pattern and offer it for free for anybody in need of some last-minute donation inspiration. If you still intend to send some knits to Cephalopod Yarns, remember their deadline is June 30th. The hats are knit with bulky weight yarn on size 10 (6.0mm) needles so they work up in a flash. I knit both of those hats within three days. The pattern includes three sizes: small (child-teenager), medium (average adult), and large (larger adult) and the resulting fabric is nice and stretchy so there is plenty of leeway in sizing. The stitch pattern is simple and the purl ridges provide a nice textural interest. The crown of the hat is shaped so that it is nicely rounded, not pointy as can sometimes happen. I hope you enjoy, and I’d love to see pictures of any hats you make with it!
