At the time I started this particular project, Beret Gaufre was the only knit hat left in my possession. So I wanted to change that, even though I don’t get much opportunity to wear wool hats in San Diego.
Pattern: Habitat by Jared Flood
Yarn: Cascade 220 in color 7631
Needles: US6 and US7 Clover bamboo circulars, US7 Clover bamboo DPNs
I knit the M-L size to account for a different row gauge, and ended up with a practical and cute hat in an appropriate size! Which has seriously never happened before.
I kind of wish I’d made it a little bit longer. I’m sure I could have figured how to chart an extra few rows at the bottom. But, oh well. I’m still pretty happy with this!
