This winter I(tm)m prepared! I(tm)ve made the Eskimo Hat in Garnstudio Drops Eskimo yarn, and the easy stranded pattern is sure to keep me warm when the cold hits. The bulky yarn makes it a quick knit, and the pom-pom ticks the box for the fun factor!
Another nice yarn for this hat is Three Irish Girls Springvale Bulky. Play with a varigated yarn for the stranded pattern, and use a solid colorway for the base.
The rolled brim is a great look for women, and a rib option for men is included in the pattern.
The pattern is written for two sizes, adult and child, and includes a chart for the stranded pattern. The hat has been tech edited by Katherine Vaughan, and test-knitted.
15 sts/17 rows over 10 cm/4 inches in stranded pattern.
147 yards of Bulky weight
I cannot remember how or when I started crafting, but most likely at school back when girls were taught sewing and knitting, while the boys had woodcrafting. Nowadays, I work hard at insulating my house with yarn and make my family handmade gifts for every occasion, regretting the lack of time for knitting. But never regretting my stash buildup! A girl's gotta have choice!
