This is the Storhedder hat by Mary Jane Mucklestone, and I love it. It was easy to knit up–quick and instantly gratifying. I hadn’t discovered Mary Jane Mucklestone’s brilliant color work until recently, and now I’m obsessed. I definitely want to try a whole bunch of her other projects; they are incredible.
I knit this one exactly like the original in the pattern, using Cascade 220 in light gray for the main color and Knit Picks Preciosa in their tonal red. I love the finished results and gifted it to Sean; as a Phoenix transplant, and temperatures dipping to -35 degrees this weekend, you can never have too many new wool hats.
I definitely want to make another one of these in a tan color for the main and black for the color work.
