Pattern: Thorpe by Kirsten Kapur
Yarn: Artesano Aran
Needles: US size 8 / 5 mm
First hat from my “to knit”-list is done! The pattern is Thorpe, once again, because it’s just so great. Love it! The yarn was new to me, Artesano Aran. It’s an alpaca- wool blend, very soft and warm. My boy says it’s not itchy which is a bonus too.
The original yarn used in the pattern was much thicker so I had to make some modifications. I increased until I had the number of stitches for size L, then continued until the hat was long enough for size S. The brim has 7 garter stitch ridges before earflaps. My son didn’t want the braids so I didn’d make any.
I’ve already casted on for another hat but more about that later.
