Gnarly Hat

While it is spring, and the weather is turning warmer, it is never too early to start planning for winter. While that sounds nice, the reality is I am working through a pile of projects that are in some stage of completion.  But hey, one day it will be cooler and I will actually get to where the hat.

I began with a free pattern for a Gnarly Hat I found on Ravelry (here) by Diana Troldahl.  I quickly discovered that the reviews were correct and the pattern is much larger than indicated.  It took me a few tries to realize that an Adult Small was needed to fit this head.

I opted to use some Lion Homespun yarn that was gifted to me.  The combination of textured yarn and the textured stitch pattern created a truly “gnarly” look. But somewhere in the bizarre texture there is beauty.

Happy Knitting!
