Back in 2013, I bought several skeins of Quince and Co. lark for their Striped Hat pattern. For some reason, they went in one of my stash bins to languish for four years.
I have no idea why this project got away from me for so long. Usually, in these cases, I rediscover the yarn years later, cannot for the life of me remember what I purchased it for, and repurpose the skeins into something else.
This pattern must have really stuck out in my mind because I rediscovered the yarn the other night and immediately dug out the pattern I had already purchased. This hat knits up so fast and the fit is like a dream. I love the rolled, turned in brim and its interesting construction.
My only modification was to do one less of the final row 1 -7 repeats. I thought the hat would be too tall if I didn’t make the slight adjustment. The height is perfect with the modification and it’s the only one I’ve been wearing since I completed it last weekend.
The pattern uses four skeins of Quince and Co. lark; I used the same color ways as the pattern called for: honey, frank’s plum, and gingerbread. I had mere yards of the main color (honey) left over because I didn’t complete all the pattern repeats, which means I have enough leftover to make another hat.
Read my project notes here. Expect to see a whole bunch more of these hats in my winter making this year; the color combinations are endless.
