I said goodbye to a number of my things when I moved, things I was unable to collect, and the hand knits I lost were among those that I do miss.
This hat was one of the items that I never got chance to blog about, and it’s a bit of a shame because it was a blinking good hat, and I designed it and never got the chance to publish the pattern. I could re-knit it and publish it, but the design looked so very lovely in the Louisa Harding Grace hand-Dyed yarn that Vivianne had so kindly sent to me that I just don’t want to knit it in something that doesn’t have that sheen and liveliness of subtle hues.
The hat was made with a subtle lace border and a stockinette top. I used an optional ribbon detail to give a little bit of extra detail to the hat, but it also looked beautiful without. The hat sat lovely on the head, with enough extra room not to squish delicate hairstyles, but at the same time having enough stretch in the hat band to make sure that the hat stayed put on the head. It was an amazing hat. *Sob*.
