I’m not actually an individual who wears hats, however there’s one thing in regards to the depths of January that makes me wish to knit hats. They’re nice quick tasks and really are actually useful to maintain you heat (I’ve recently taken to carrying one inside the home after I’m tremendous chilly, which is usually when it’s really chilly exterior).
If you happen to’re out there for a brand new hat to knit this 12 months, permit me to supply Winter Nightfall by Andrea Tong.
This DK weight hat is labored from the underside up within the spherical and makes use of puff stitches so as to add straightforward texture, and it is available in 4 sizes. A DK weight hat would really be nice for carrying in the home (or workplace, or wherever you occur to be nowadays) as a result of it’s not too heavy. Or if in case you have plenty of hair and don’t prefer to put on full hats, you’ll be able to go away off the very prime of the hat and make it a messy bun hat as an alternative.
The sample is offered on Ravelry, or you’ll be able to test it out at Two Sheeps. Apparently this sample was a part of their yarn calendar final 12 months (which I didn’t know was a factor; this 12 months’s calendar is a PDF solely however you’ll be able to test it out right here).
You can even purchase a equipment from Two Sheeps that features the sample and the yarn. The yarn is from Hidden Pond Yarn and it’s known as Ski Lodge at Nightfall. It’s a child alpaca, silk and cashmere mix, which sounds similar to the form of factor I’d prefer to have on my head proper about now.
Regardless of the place or how you purchase it, the proceeds from the sample gross sales might be donated to Knit the Rainbow, a charitable group that gives handmade clothes to unhoused LGBTQ+ youth. You possibly can study extra about that group right here.
