Pattern Description:

Made up in Reverie Worsted (blue) and Wool of the Andes Worsted (white). This spiral design in 2 colors unites the smooth, sturdy texture of WOTA with the lofty softness of Reverie for a super-light, super-warm, and super-stylish Winter hat. The 1x1 ribbing in WOTA transitions into a slip stitch spiral pattern on garter-stitch Reverie, ending with a dramatic white star-shape on the crown.
This design assumes the knitter has prior experience with knitting in the round, working with stranded (fair isle) knitting, and using crossed (cabled) stitches.



5 st = 1 inch in 1x1 ribbing

Now that I'm working part-time, I have been able to get back to spending more time knitting for all my kids and grandkids. Whenever I get an idea for a project, and can't find the perfect pattern - I just design my own! I love sharing the finished patterns, and hope others might find that my designs are: "Just what they had in mind!"
