This hat was designed as a way to use Sari Silk yarn, which has beautiful colors but is overwhelming when used alone. In this hat the brilliant colors of the Sari silk peek through a more subdued shade of wool. It also works well for other shiny yarns, such as chunky banana yarn. It is a very quick knit.
It takes chunky 12 ply yarn. You can use any 2 yarns that you think would look good together, and you can hold 2 or 3 strands together of lighter weight yarns in order to get gauge.
The beehive color is C1 and the peek-a-boo color is C2.
65-80g (80-100 yds) C1. Chunky wool or DK wool held double
60-70g (45-50 yds) C2. (Note: recycled Sari Silk is much heavier per yard than wool.)
You will need a 16” circular needle and a set of double point needles.
It is a very versatile pattern. Make it longer, and it becomes a slouchy hat. Add another row and the peek-a-boo becomes more pronounced. You could even reduce the number of purl rows to make the purl ridges smaller.
Instructions are for 20” (51cm), 22” (56cm) and 24” (61cm) hats.
The pattern comes as a pdf file to your email address.
