Posted yesterday on Ravelry, Spirit, a new hat knitting pattern, probably the most comfortable winter hat I have ever worn. Cabled around the ears for warmth and coziness, roomy in the crown. Use stranded colorwork to highlight interesting stitch patterns, or work entirely in monotone colorway…ever how the spirit moves you.

These hats pictured here are all knit with variegated and solid Malabrigo worsted Merino yarns.

Finished size is approximately 18-20 inches (46-51.5cm). Spirit will fit older children, teens, and adults. Sources for faux and genuine fur pom poms included with the six page photo tutorial pdf. Hope you will enjoy knitting Spirit. I certainly enjoyed designing this hat pattern.black monotone spirit cable hat

I have spent this week writing about new styles and new patterns for Fall Fashion 2011. Find out what’s new, get free patterns for big yarn, and oh, so stylish easy floofy or straight knitted skirt patterns for little or big girls and women. Lace is big, but so are slouchy chic sweaters knit with bulky weight yarn. New scarf patterns, as well as shawls and shrugs and jackets to knit or crochet up to size 3X.
