Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,
I am excited to share my new hat pattern with you. I have been talking about the gray and yellow color combination that I love so dearly. Now I have a super cute and quick hat to show for it. I am simply calling it the Beluga and Firefly Hat in honor of these two spectacular Spud & Chloë Sweater colorways.
Can’t you just feel how squishy that hat is? It feels like a dream. I sat down with a sketchbook and a pencil and made up the striping stitch pattern in Firefly after several times of trying out different things. I wanted a textural stripe but nothing too difficult and I think the result is fantastic.
Here is some information you might like to know:
Size: Older child to adult woman
Circumference in inches: 19 inches
Yarn: Spud & Chloë Sweater (55% superwash wool, 45% organic cotton; 100 grams/160 yards), 1 hank each in Beluga #7521and Firefly #7505
Needles: US size 7 sixteen-inch circular needles and a set of 4 double-pointed needles or size to obtain gauge
Gauge: 5 stiches per inch in stockinette stitch
Ruler or tape measure
This is my new go-to hat pattern for the upcoming gift knitting season. I love how quick, simple and fun it is to work up. Think of all the color combinations you could come up with by pairing the Beluga with any other color in Sweater… endless possibilities await!
