Hat Challenge April

March 26, 2018


The Hat Challenge Project for April is Barley by tincanknits.  It is one of my favorite hat patterns and designers.  The pattern is written for baby through adult.  It can be knit more slouchy or less slouchy depending on your preference, and it's worsted weight so it knits up quickly.

Our samples left to right:

Berroco Comfort color 9768-Indigo
Cascade Eco Duo color 210-Teals

Hat Challenge 2018: January

January 24, 2018


Anyone up for a challenge? This year I thought it would be fun to knit one extra hat a month. It will be a great way to try new patterns, a new yarn and maybe find your new favorite hat pattern. At the end of the year you’ll have 12 hats for gifting, donating or wearing. I will pick a fun hat every month but feel free to knit whatever hat pattern you’d like.

For January I picked Mullspice by Alicia Plummer. The name sounds so warm and cozy for our dreary weather.  Bumblebirch's DK weight will pop the cable and textural stitches.  As always, we would love to see your finished projects.  Post on Instagram and tag us, @nitroknitters and use #nitroknittersfo
