I’ve been tweaking a hat pattern to come up with something new knitters can make on circular needles. Most of my beginning students don’t want to work on a project that needs seaming up when the knitting is finished. Many of my beginners would like to try circular needles………..as well as move on to making a hat instead of being stuck in the ‘scarf knitter only’ category.
I’ve made up 5 of these hats over this past holiday week. An easy project, uses a minimal amount of yarn and is a great transition project for people who request a class to move beyond scarves.
I love this version, using a vintage mohair yarn I have been wanting to “play” with. So much going on with this yarn, it needed a very simple pattern so it could show off on its own.
I’m anxious for some of my new knitting students to give this a try!
Just listed this sparkly number here in my Etsy shop!
