3 different patterns all using the same bulky yarn.
These hats work up quickly on size 15 needles.
Style A is ribbed and styles B and C are garter stitch.
Style A is a real cold weather hat, "walking the dog" hat.
Style B is more of a "skater style" unisex hat.
Style C uses 2 strands of contrasting colors to produce a tweedy effect and a firmer stylish design.
Any one of them is a good project to try knitting in the round and using double pointed needles.
Great for gifts.
Good for the advanced beginner.
8 stitches = 4in/10cm in stockinette stitch
My design philosophy: My designs are a mixture of traditional and non-traditional elements. My patterns are easy to read and are often based on simple shapes and techniques that minimize complicated finishing. The majority of my patterns are accessories so sizing is often not critical. My love of texture and color shows up in my ability to mix yarns and to match yarns to particular styles.
