Autumnal hat, great for chunky handspun

 

Skimming Stone is a simple hat pattern. It’s entirely knitted in rib, so is very comfy and stretchy, worked with needles of two different sizes to keep the cast on edge fitting the head while the back of the hat softens and slouches. Included is a short guide to translating this pattern for any individual yarn. This is a basic shape which is open to creative interpretation :) knitted in a finer yarn on 10mm needles, or bigger even, this would take on a lovely, loose, lacey feeling and a completely different character. I know it’s not easy to drag yourself out of bed on autumn mornings, but maybe a fancy hat would add some novelty value? For one day at least.

Apologies, of course, for the long absence. I was getting laid.
