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.

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!"
