Knotted Rib Hat
It felt good to knit a hat this week!
It's been a long time.
I saw this pattern on Facebook and decided to make it the hat since I had suitable yarn. I used Cascade 220 Superwash (worsted weight). When I finished the hat, I noticed the pattern called for Cascade 220 Superwash (aran weight). I had never heard of this before. Maybe it's new!? I think aran weight yarn is slightly thicker or heavier than worsted weight. The pattern called for US Size 7 needles which is what I used. The hat fits perfectly on my wig stand, Miss Wiggy. To me the hat seems a bit short so I imagine the fit is more of a skull type cap. I haven't even tried it on myself yet; I am sure it will fit someone.
The pattern is called Knotted Rib Hat and the pattern is free. The pattern can be found HERE.
