A Very Special Hat

A dear friend of mine, Kle, recently invited me to a live concert in exchange for a handknitted hat. As she is a very special person, I decided to knit her a very special hat. It is loosely based on Woolly Wormhead’s Scrapalong pattern with lots of short rows, some of them textured in seed stitch, some of them stacked, a bit of popcorn stitch and a flat top. The result is a slouchy something, the front a lot longer than the back, and can be worn in many different ways.

I have used 68g of Tausendschön sock yarn in a variegated colorway on 2.5mm needles. The pattern is sort of a recipe, open to add your own ideas. It can be knit in any yarn weight and comes in a lot of sizes. You definitely should try it, the pattern is for free.
