cold.

This hat was really quick to knit, and already, tons of friends are coveting one of their own. I made some modifications to Brook Taylor’s Winter Blues hat, namely a 2×2 rib at the bottom, no changes in color over the colorwork chart, and no hearts, just snowflakes.

I also went down two needle sizes because I could tell it would be too large and slouchy on my head if I didn’t. The end result is perfect.

Knit using leftover skeins of Manos Del Uruguay Wool Clasica in the petrol colorway and some Malabrigo Merino Worsted Merino in very berry for the colorwork. See my notes for the project here.

I have a feeling I will be knitting a whole pile more of these in the coming weeks.

  1. This hat, your style, your amazing knitting skills – How does some simple dude in Nebraska go about asking for one?!? *Notice the desperate/awkwardness of my plea* 😉
