This time of year has many of us doing a bit of armchair traveling. From the cozy comfort of our chairs by the fire we can dream of warmer climates and alluring locales around the globe. Occasionally, those dreams of far off places can inform and inspire our knitwear designs.
Cap Sease created a beautiful hat pattern that reminds us of the classic architecture details that can be found on landmarks located on the other side of the Atlantic. Her Athens Key Hat features a classic Greek key motif created with slipped stitch garter rows that result in a thick warm fabric that will keep your ears delightfully warm.
We used Spinnery Mewesic and our New Mexico Organic yarns for these samples. Pictured in Pink Cadillac and Purple Haze Mewesic with White New Mexico Organic (on the left) and Diamonds and Rust and Norwegian Wood Mewesic with White New Mexico Organic (on the right).
We hope that you’ll consider casting on for this pattern while planning your next getaway. You may find that having a new hat to toss in your bag may broaden the destination options to include the perfect spot!
