I absolutely adore the way this project turned out! I was perusing my new favorite LYS the other day when I happened upon the most luxurious yarn EVER. It's Malabrigo 100% merino wool, and it is softer than I can even express! The colorway is absolutely fantastic, it's a sort of coral-y peach and brownish-green variegated called Peachtree.
I was inspired by an old floppy sort-of-tam hat a friend of mine was wearing. It was a chemo hat that belonged to her aunt many years ago. After examining it for a few minutes I decided I could whip up my own version. This is 100% my own pattern and it used one full skein of the Malabrigo wool (about 3.5oz).
Check it out!!
I went a little nuts with photos because I'm so happy with how it turned out!
It's a pretty large hat (hence the title of the post). I wanted a hat that I could comfortably fit all of my hair in. It could definitely accomodate some medium-length dreads.
This photo doesn't do the colorway justice! When knit in the round it stripes in a cool spiral pattern.
Hope you all like it!
