Philip

$6.75

Curt had requested I knit his dad, my father-in-law, a hat for Christmas, which I was quite happy to oblige. I asked Curt what color he was looking for, to which he requested blue, and set off to pull out all the blue yarn from my stash for him to consider (I’m sure you’ve all been there lol!).

.

He instantly picked out the skein of “That Blue” dyed by Small Fish Yarns. Coincidentally, the dyer is just north of Edmonton in St. Albert, which is local to where Curt grew up. It’s like the stars aligned and this beautiful yarn was meant to be a hat for Phil.

Description

Philip – 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 with your 16” (40 cm) circular needles, you’ll switch to the magic loop method or double-pointed needles (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.
