And while speaking of grey.. there is lots of it taking place in my wardrobe.. so monochromatic collection is being created for a reason and here the addition or reveal.
Simple in shape, textured look using this cool stitch pattern, big needle along with thick (worsted weight) yarn make it easy and quick to craft in an evening or two. And the pattern for it is available in 3 sizes.
This one I have made using just a little over half a skein of Blue Sky Alpacas Suri Merino yarn in color Fog. I have worked with this amazing yarn before and it is just soft and silky as well as incredibly warm. Little holes in the the stitch created with yarn overs play a role of tiny vents if you want.. in case you tend to get a little toasty.
To fit head circumferences 20", 21.5", 22.75"Yarn: Blue Sky Alpacas Suri Merino 1 skein or 164 yards (150 m) of any worsted weight yarn.
Needle US 8 (5 mm) needle to work in a round (your preferred method, 16", dpns, magic loop or 2 circulars).
The way it's constructed - every motif is a little different and as you work on the hat - is progressively getting smaller. The pattern contains clear written instructions as well as a chart. So in case charts make you uncomfortable, you can follow row by row instructions for it. Have fun knitting! And don't forget to share the photos.
