There is a hat currently weaving its way through the postal offices of Europe all the way to Ukraine. I don’t know what comes to your mind when you think Ukraine, but for me winter is definitely one of the main associations.
And this hat has got winter covered! Even Ukrainian winter. ;)
It was knit with a fingering-weight yarn held double (a first-time for me, and much easier than I expected).
I think that made it approximately aran-weight, which is what the pattern calls for. It definitely made it extra warm and squishy!
And of course, it provokes endless sillyness…
Some patterns are such classics that you can just make them again and again and again and again. That is exactly how many times I’ve made Debbie Bliss’s Cabled Beret. Mind you, I still haven’t made one for myself. Hmm, maybe I should make it again…
Is there a pattern you keep going back to? What’s your favourite classic?
