What’s This, Another New Design?

Standard

Why yes, yes it is! Here, I would like to introduce Kaylee to you.

Using sport weight yarn and a textured chevron pattern, Kaylee allows a certain amount of breathability, while still creating a unique, comfy hat perfect for transitional seasons. I really love how the spiky area looks- very cute! Plus, the stitch definition provided by Wool of the Andes- a 100% wool yarn- will show off the chevron stitch perfectly. Check out some of the versions my test knitters made here– it looks really great in handpaints, variegated, and striped yarns, too!

The hat is sized from a perfectly adorable baby topper all the way up to a fashionably chic adult large. baby (child’s small, teen, adult small, adult large)= 13” (16”, 18.5”, 21”, 24”). The pattern includes both written and charted directions for the body and decreases of the hat.

This pattern is made in conjunction with the Knit Picks Independent Designer Program. Although Knit Picks hasn’t gotten the pattern up yet, you can still find it on ravelry here. For this first week (until 1/4/12) it will be available for FREE! After that, it will go up to a pretty reasonable $1.99.

    • I know- I was really excited to see how the hat turned out in all of the different yarns. A couple of the testers felt compelled to ask to make sure it was OK for them to used variegated or striping yarns. I thought “why not?” and they turned out to be my favorite ones!
