With Valentine’s Day approaching, I thought I’d share a recent design I published on Ravelry. It’s called the Best Friends Forever hat and the idea is that you can take two skeins of yarn and create two hats – one for you and your best friend!
Knitted hats that are made from the bottom up typically have crown shaping created by knitting two stitches together at certain intervals. In my design, I decided to purl the two stitches together. This produces a unique pattern as shown below. I figured “Why not be different?”
The patterns calls for Cascade 220 Superwash but I think any lightweight worsted yarn would work. I’ve noticed that some of my newer Cascade 220 Superwash is thinner than some other “worsted” weight yarns so it might be closer to a DK. Whichever yarn you use, you should make a gauge swatch to make sure your hat will be the right size.
So, have you thought of what colors you might have in your stash?
