catching up, again

this time of year, it seems that i crank things out faster than i can keep up.
Hill Country Hat
Pattern: Hill Country Hat from the Knitter's Book of Wool (and for free here [pdf])
Yarn: Plymouth Suri Merino in beige, 1 skein
Needles: #8 circs. i can't remember which ones
Started: November 24, Finished: November 25

I was going to make this for my brother for xmas, but spicy's dad is staying at his house right now. spicy mentioned to me that his dad doesn't have a lot of winter stuff, so i came up with another plan for my brother, and decided to give this hat to spicy's dad.

the pattern is written for a chunky yarn, but because it's knit from the top down, it was easy to add more increase rows to get a proper fit in worsted weight yarn. the hat is slouchy on me, but i think it will fit well on a bigger noggin'. the pattern is easy to work, and it makes a really interesting texture. i think this hat would pair well with handspun yarns.

suri merino is quickly becoming one of my favorite yarns. it's very soft, just a little fuzzy, and quite affordable. i still have a few skeins left to play with.


  1. that Hill Country hat looks better when you knitted it than the original picture--lol! I like it slouchy than beanie style. You are cranking up these beautiful hats! very nice work.

  2. It looks nice and cozy!

  3. I would have never guessed it wasn't supposed to be slouchy!
