Our friend Maria Muscarella (aka Ninja Chickens) recently released a clever hat pattern that is wildly adaptable. This top down hat that can be knit with any weight yarn in two contrasting colors. You simply cast on 8 stitches and continue increasing until you have the perfect size hat for you! It will work for everyone on your knitworthy list and could allow you to use up some stash yarn to boot. Win/win.
We’d like to introduce you to her Andromeda Cap.
You’ll see on Ravelry, that this pattern works for a variety of yarn gauges. She worked up several versions, two in sport weight and one in worsted weight, using Green Mountain Spinnery Weekend Wool.
“This worsted weight version is so cozy and feels very warm. I also love the 2 solid color version and how well the slipped stitches show up. The Green Mountain Spinnery Yarn is also wonderful for filling in the spaces when it’s blocked and creating a nice solid structure to the knitting.” It couldn’t be cozier.
She used less than full skeins of two colors for this sample that fits a 22″ circumference adult head. We love the gorgeous contrast that allows the different textures of the fabric to pop!
Which colors of Weekend Wool would you consider pairing together?
