Two Hats in Four Days

What you will need

  • Needed to make some samples showing the same pattern in two yarns. The larger hat
  • in Tahki Tara Tweed (80 percent unspun wool and 20 percent nylon)
  • was knit on US 8s with US 7s for the ribbing. It's much too large
  • but I think I can felt it down to make it wearable. The second hat
  • in Malabrigo worsted (100 percent merino)
  • was knit on US 7s with US 5 ribbing. It turned out much better. The yarn was a lot nicer to work with
  • too. The tweed would break with the slightest stress
  • so I ended up knitting more loosely than I'd like.
  • US 7 / 4.5 mm / UK 7
