Bellamy

$8.00

Do you have a family member or friend you want to knit for that tends to be on the picky side of things? My uncle is very much like that! He wanted some hats one year for Christmas with the strict guidelines of “no frills” and “no pink”. Bellamy is a beginner-friendly hat pattern that features a subtle easy to remember texture that even someone as fickle as my uncle can appreciate.

Description

Bellamy – This hat design is worked bottom-up, starting with the brim, followed by the body, and then decreasing for the crown. When the crown becomes too small to continue, you’ll switch to the magic loop method or DPNs (depending on your knitting preference).

This hat pattern has multiple sizes and includes two weights of yarn – so you’ll be able to find the perfect fit! Worked in the round, this pattern contains written directions and charts.

This hat pattern shines well with solid, semi-solid, lightly variegated, or speckled yarns. Picking an appropriate yarn for this project will ensure the yarn and the pattern are not in competition with one another, rather they’re working together to create something magical.
