This was an exciting knit. The pattern is clearly written and the cable and bobble texture really brings the beanie to the next level. This hat was a pleasure to knit and lives up to the RhyFlower name! – Bella, Test Knitter
Pattern Roundup: Jerrah – One of my long-term testers and wonderful friend, Jerrah, and I had never knit a project where the lace mohair was going to run alongside the regular yarn for a project. There are loads of sweaters and stuff out there that use the technique, but we thought it would be fun to work up a new design for our little adventure for our first go-around. With this being my little adventure project with Jerrah, naming the pattern after here seemed to be the best plan.
I am a sucker for cabled hats, so this seemed like a great chance to play around with some fun cables.
Worked in the round, Jerrah contains written directions and charts. When the crown becomes too small to continue, you’ll switch to the magic loop method or DPNs.

For Jerrah, I used a lovely pairing I picked up from Allison Barnes Yarn, using her DK base held double with some mohair lace. As previously mentioned, this was the first time I’ve ever used mohair in this manner, and WOW does it ever make for a warm hat.
Allison Barnes – DK – 100% SW Merino – 250 yds (229 m) / 4 oz (115 g) – Color: Pink Champagne
Allison Barnes – Mohair Lace – 70% Superkid Mohair 30% Silk – 459 yds (420 m) / 1.8 oz (50 g) – Color: Pink Champagne
Yarn Substitutes – Any DK+Lace Mohair held double, or worsted weight held single, that allows you to obtain a gauge of 16 stitches by 28 rounds in stockinette = 4” / 10 cm, after blocking. As you can see from the tester projects below, your color choices will matter as the pattern does tend to get lost when using busier yarns. Depending on the look you’re going for, you will want to be mindful of your yarn choices.
