Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting in the round, on double pointed needles
  • Purl
  • Basic decreases

Pattern Description:

This pattern is one, that I designed, for those of you who are art yarn lovers, or spinners, who wonder, just what you can do with a small amount of it!

This sweet hat features gentle ribbing, for fit, and a sweet, dotted ruffley ribbon, which you can arrange, how you like!

The Lucy pattern takes all of the guesswork out of working with your super bulky, art yarn!
Art yarn spinners will give you the Wraps per inch, for their yarns, but if you are in doubt, or have some yarn, you aren't sure about, you can simply knit up a swatch, and match the gauge. (Yarn resources include shops from the U.S., Canada, U.K., Italy and Germany)

Note: If you have less than 25 yards of art yarn, you can still make this hat! I used about 22 yards.

Thank you, to Keri Messina, for her beautiful photography! If you are near Arcata, CA, look her up!
