Joyful January is a smart hybrid hat that is fitted enough for the beanie lover and has a little slouch in the back for the beret lover. It is knit in one piece, with nearly no finishing! Starting from the fan, the band is knit flat and joined to form a loop. Body of the hat is picked up along the row edge of the band and worked in the round to the crown. The center of the crown is accented with an optional i-cord button, adding a special finishing detail. This design is great for featuring that special embellishment you've been looking to add to your hats, such as a vintage button or brooch, or a crocheted lace flower. Shown here, the fancy fan on the band is accented with a glass flower button by BC glass artist, Nicole Valentine. Knitting this hat will bring you joy and wearing it will keep your ears warm!

I have been artistic all my life, but no medium has obsessed me more than knitting. I live with my needles in hand! After leaving a career in social work, I decided to make fiber art central in my life. I got started in the fiber craft industry managing Mary Maxim Boutique in Toronto and as a Designer Assistant for Americo Original. In May 2012, I moved to Guelph, Ontario to further pursue an artistic life. As a newer indie designer, I am building my brand, Ash Kearns Handknitting and publishing regularly. I currently display my designs and teach regularly in Guelph, Ontario at All Strung Out Fine Yarns.
