Here is my hat. And here is the pattern.
I saw a hat in the Garnet Hill catalog last winter that was similar to this. It was made of cashmere and had a price tag to prove it. I thought I would try to make my own version of it and then lost the photo. Imagine my surprise when I saw it in the catalog again this year. Right away, I decided to give it a go, but I used my new most favorite yarn, Malabrigo worsted, instead of the cashmere. I had this pretty pink on hand and for lack of a better name, I am calling this the Rose Hill Hat.
It's an easy hat. Some garter stitch, some bobbles and then full speed ahead with the stockinette stitch. I haven't written out a pattern to share before, so if you do make it and - gasp! - find any mistakes, let me know and I will correct them. I put the pattern in a pdf that you can download here or over in the left side bar. I am extremely grateful to Tracy, who didn't think twice when I asked her to take my camera and photograph it for me. She also graciously let me use one of her shots for the pattern - thank you so much, friend.
Go on, get knitting.
