Skill Level:

intermediate skill level requirement Advanced

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl
  • right and left twists
  • increase
  • decrease
  • knit in the round
  • twisted stitches

Pattern Description:

Please note: The yarn is held double throughout. Though the yarn is listed as DK, I would say it's a little lighter than that - two strands together make a healthy worsted weight. Please keep that in mind when making yarn substitutions (you can also just use a worsted weight yarn, of course!)


Twists are magical things! They're like cables, but less fiddly. Here, they're used to "draw" a series of criss- crossing ribbony things, separated by eyelet ladders. The chart is very intuitive, making it much easier than it looks, and the glittery cashmere yarn can only be described as "really friggin' luxurious." The combination is sophisticated but light-hearted, and the hat knits up more quickly than you'd expect - perfect when you need a gift that will really wow 'em or just a special treat for your fine self.

And I like you too, sugar cheeks. I can?t say I care for bio-writing, though. Boring stuff: I graduated with a degree in psychology (still in mint condition!) from Reed College, after dinking around at the Pacific Northwest ...
