New pattern! It’s still cold enough to require a hat here in Toronto, and this one works up really quickly, with 1 skein of yarn. The yak/cormo blend from Bijou Basin was a Rhinebeck purchase few years ago, and it’s SO NICE! It held up really well to a couple of ripping-and-reknitting incidents, and is so warm yet light.
Bathurst is a soft and slightly slouchy hat with a simple and interesting stitch pattern. Yarn over increases create right- angled triangles that are then pleated, creating a cushy and airy double layered fabric. The crown of the hat is worked in simple stockinette with a quickly gathered crown.
The main body of the hat is worked flat, with ribbed edges and buttonholes, then joined into the round for the crown.
