Hakea Hat

An addictive new hat pattern…

Hakea Hat is a fun way to play with colour. The contrasting slip stitch sections are easy to work; a single colour per round produces dramatic results. Use a colour-change yarn or make a scraptastic version by using those tiny leftovers you’ve been saving from a favourite project – I used my Radvent Wrap leftovers for the colourful version below. Either way you’ll whiz through each round to get to the next colour and have a gorgeous hat in no time. The slip stitch pattern reminds me of the spiky flowers of the Hakea plant, an Australian native of which there are many varieties. It’s well worth a google search if you are unfamiliar with these beautiful plants. Choose between 3 sizes – this will be perfect for y our gift knit repertoire and see if you can stop at just one.

Enjoy 30% off the pattern through December 25, 2020. Find it on Ravelry here and on Etsy here.
