For some reason, this hat initially reminded the designer, Parna, of a beehive... which then reminded her of that old school beehive hairdo, which then led her to realize that not only are hats warm and comfy, but they can also be a great hairstyle fix on those days when you just don’t feel like having a hairstyle at all.
This hat is a great exploration of knits and purls in the round – the 1 x 1 ribbing transitions into Seed Stitch, demonstrating the different textures that can be accomplished with a very minor tweak in your stitch pattern. The texture looks great with either heavily or slightly variegated yarns.
Like all Malabrigo yarns, Malabrigo Worsted is kettle-dyed in small batches by artisan dyers and is full of subtle variation and beauty. Particularly for variegated colors, skeins will vary from one to the next even within the same dye lot and will vary, sometimes substantially, from what is pictured. While colors shown are accurate to the best of our ability, computer monitors and dye lots both vary so the skeins you receive may differ from what is shown.
This kit contains materials to make 1 hat in any of the four offered sizes: Baby [Child, Adult Small, Adult Large]. Finished hat approx: 13 [16, 19, 22]”/33 [40, 48, 56] cm after blocking. With one skein, the largest size may not have enough yarn for a pom pom depending on your row gauge.
