I don’t often knit from other patterns, just because I’m so busy trying to work on my own! But I needed a new hat for the random cold snaps we’ve been having amidst weirdly mild weather, so when I saw this hat in the latest issue of knitty I grabbed a lovely single skein and got to it!
Pattern: Escargot from knitty
Yarn: Jill Draper Makes Stuff Hudson in Steel, leftover Malabrigo Rios and Tanis Fiber Arts fingering weight
I found the brim a bit roll-y and insubstantial as written, so I picked up stitches on the inside with a smaller needle and knit a bit of a brim lining. It’s super cozy, and while I normally have a really hard time actually wearing hats I think this one will get a lot of use.
