Leafy Tops Hat

from College Knitting
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Leafy Tops Hat
Leafy Tops Hat
Leafy Tops Hat
Leafy Tops Hat
Leafy Tops Hat

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • work in the round on circular or dpn
  • basic lace- yo, left and right decreases, etc.

Pattern Description:

The leafy tops hat plays with the traditional hat crown, adding lace to the decreases to create a leaf shape. The inch of ribbing at the bottom of the hat will keep the tops of the wearer's ears warm, and the stockinette body makes it a great gift for someone who enjoys a more simple style. Additionally, the leaves also resemble Christmas trees, making it a great holiday gift.
The recommended yarn, Knit One, Crochet Two Brae Tweed, is a fairly loosely spun single ply that is surprisingly unsplitty. The interesting fiber content (60% merino, 20% baby llama, 10% bamboo, and 10% wool) makes a finished fabric that is warm, drapey, and incredibly soft. Although I highly recommend Brae, any aran weight yarn would work as long as you can achieve the correct gauge.
