I have been admiring this hat pattern since it first started making the rounds through the Phat Fiber group about a year ago. I nabbed this fun yellow yarn at the McKellar Market this summer. I grabbed two skeins to make sure I had enough to make awesome tassels, which for me is the best part of the hat.
I think this hat is going to be perfect for the winter, and ideal for cross country skiing. The color makes it pop and will make me happy on the long, cold days of winter.
Project Name: Ochre Skiing Hat
Yarn: Bulky Single Ply from Pondering Rock Farm (a local farmer/dyer)
- Tassels – I followed this tutorial to make the tassels.
Feedback: Fun, easy, quick knit. I love the look of hood/bonnet style hats, and I will probably be making more.
Re-Knit?: Maybe, by request or in case of loss. I like the style but a person really doesn’t need more than one of such a specific style of hat.
