Named for the experimental ship camouflage the British designed in WWI that it resembles, the Dazzle hat looks more complicated than it actually is! Knitted using fun, easy garter stitch short row stripes, this hat offers many options to play with color and works up super fast. Try it in two colors, or break out a four-color gradient set or ombré sock blank paired with a main color for a cool ombré effect. Also it works great for using up scraps!
Braided Cable Beanie
Cables, cables, cables! This pattern was created for the advanced-beginner/intermediate knitter who loves chunky, squishy cables and beanies that have just the tiniest bit of slouch. This hat will fit an average size woman’s head. This pattern is simple to follow and will provide you with written instructions on how to complete this hat.
The folds of the gently cabled fabric seem to catch the light. The softness of the hand dyed, merino, cashmere and silk blend yarn is oh so touchable. It’s topped with a fox fur pompom – now that’s luxury. 5th Avenue will show us nothing finer. Treat yourself. The hat is very stretchy and easy to fit. The stitch pattern used for the body of the hat is worked almost completely in stockinette stitch with the minimal use of cables to create the gentle folds.
