I wanted to see if I could learn a new stitch pattern and be able to carry it through from the beginning of a project to the end. Turns out, I can!

Pretty!  Can you share the pattern?  And I, also, want to know the yarn type.   Grin

Wow! Thanks everyone! What a nice surprise!!! I guess this is the first hat/FO I've made where I actually did something 'different' to make it not just another ordinary hat.

I used this yarn I got at San Francisco yarn store Artfibers Yarn Mills. They manufacture all their own yarn and it's all beautiful! It's 50% wool, 50% silk and is really lovely to look at. The colour has different dimensions to it so it isn't uniform. It has a sheen, too.

The yarn is called Kurosawa and the colour is #17, I think. The search function on their site isn't working right now but the colour is a dark teal green.

Pattern? I just use the Yarn Harlot's guidelines to making a hat and I wing it.

I'll have to get back to you as I don't remember the symbols for the stitch pattern. I'll do a better pattern later.

I'm so glad you guys like the hat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Correction: the colour is #3:

http://www.artfibers.com/yarnproduct.php?pd=6132&cr=03&fb=3&np=4&cs=2


US #8 (5mm) 16" circulars

1. CO 73 sts
2. Sl very 1st CO st purlwise back onto left needle.
3. k2tog to result in 72 sts. *This is a tip I learnt that makes your join a little nicer*

4. 3 x 1 rib for about 3 rnds

5. Now that I look at the lace pattern in the book, I think I did an extra step. Ah well, it still looks cool, I think:

*k1,yo, k1, sl knitwise,k1,sl the slipped stitch over the one you just knit*

Do this on all rows for as long as you want the hat before working the crown decreases. I reverted to stockinette to do the dec.

Somehow, at this point I ended up with 77 sts and I'm not sure how. Anyway:

The decreases:

6. k11, k2tog whole rnd
next rnd) k10, k2tog
next rnd) k9, k2tog

Cont in this manner til you have about 6 sts left. Gather them with a tapestry needle and finish.

Hope this was clear enough. Let me know if you need clarification!
