The Chrolla Hat is a light-weight hat made in less than 100g of fingering weight yarn. The sample is made from Knit Picks Chroma Fingering, and it’s single-ply structure blooms wonderfully with the lace. Plus, I completely love the striped effect- it doesn’t overwhelm the simple styling at all!
The unique textured mesh is punctuated by a 2×2 cables and the slouchy, beret-style makes Chrolla the perfect choice for stylish knitters! I totally zenned out while working on it. Even with fingering weight yarn, the sample seemed to take no time to make.
Additionally, the wide array of sizes—child (teen, adult small, adult large)—makes it a very versatile pattern. Try it for yourself or a gift!
If you would like to make it, you can find it on ravelry, here. You can also see the test knits made in a couple of different yarns. Eventually it will also be available on the Knit Picks Independent Designer Program. For the next two weeks (until Aug. 3, 2012), it will be a free pattern to reward all of the early birds and blog readers. After that, it will go up to $1.99.
