We will be meeting Wednesday, March 9, BACK AT THE MEADOWS BRANCH of the Boulder Public Library, from 3:00-4:30. We have two hat patterns for March. You can get them at the links below or we'll have some hard copies available at the meeting. Hope to see you there!
I want to point out that the beautiful art pieces in the background of these photos are Giselle's own quilt panels. Stunning work!
First there is Roxana's Hat with Four Corners, made with worsted weight yarn and US 7 (4.5 mm) needles. It's shown here with a pompom, but that's optional. Seeing this hat pattern made me a little sentimental, as it was the first Community Knitting project I ever made, many years ago. There's a little simple seaming at the end, but NO DECREASES, so if you hate working on DPNs, this is the hat pattern for you. I think I see a stack of these in my future! There's a specified stripe pattern, but you can make a solid version or use up your leftovers and stripe at will.
Next, for those who want something a little different, is the January Squall hat (free on Ravelry), which uses super bulky yarn and US 15 (10 mm) needles. It uses some simple lace, which you can work from a chart or written instructions. I've been playing around with some modifications for this using worsted weight doubled and US 10 (6 mm) needles. I may try a worsted weight version as well. It's worked over a multiple of 10 stitches, so pretty easy to modify. (With lighter weight yarns, you get more rounds per inch, so you need to work extra rounds after the lace panel.)
