Keep your head warm and your gauge swatches interesting with this inventive trio of slouch hats, knit in different yarn weights so you can find your perfect knitting mojo! Named for the goddesses Athena, Helen, and Minerva, these hats are constructed with an innovative finishing segment technique that provides some levity and is combined with a beautiful cable and eyelet pattern that results in a eye-catching yet cozy hat you'll love to show off. To top it all off, the hats use the same stitch patterns and yarn weights as their sister pullovers, so there's no need to make a separate swatch for the sweaters. Lovely and helpful? Now that's a gift from the goddesses!

Jill Wolcott Knits
I am a fashion designer who designs hand knits. I love hand knits because we create both the fabric and the shape. My designs reflect my intense interest in fashion, with a keen eye to design and technique. Jill Wolcott Knits® patterns are very complete--I strive to create a complete and clear guide to a completed project and leave little room for interpretation. When a pattern challenges you to conquer a new technique, the directions and support are there to give you a great result (I've given it lots of thought and coached many knitters to new skill heights). Your reward will be the skill that you take forward in your knitting. My love is knitting, not sewing, so I design so that as much as possible is done on the knitting needles with sewing only as absolutely necessary. This isn't necessarily a shortcut, but I think it works really well for those who don't love the finishing process. I have an extensive online techniques library to help you master techniques I use, and anything specific to a pattern is included.
