Yesterday, Friday September 15th was make a hat day. And just in case you didn’t cast on we thought we would offer you a few suggestions so that you could get started before the week’s end and join the fun!
Melissa Johnson’s Hat Quartet patterns are some of our best selling patterns this season. The four patterns were created for our 2016 Project Club and kitted up for the members who signed up. They became publicly available earlier this year, and we’ve been delighted to see how much folks are enjoying their projects.
Each of the patterns feature different Spinnery yarns. Going clockwise from the top left, Winter calls for four colors of worsted Mountain Mohair, Spring calls for four colors of Sylvan Spirit, Fall calls for four colors of Mewesic and Summer calls for three colors of Cotton Comfort.
Much of this beautiful stranded color work requires less than full skeins, so you will have extra yardage available to make additional ones by alternating your colors. This could be a really fun way to start your holiday knits, do a bit of charity knitting, or use up some stash yarn that has been waiting to be put to a good use.
Ease your way back into larger cool weather projects with an accessory (or two) that will be off your needles in no time! Happy Knitting!
