After I finished the My So Called Scarf for myself, I decided I needed a hat to go with it. When I saw the My Herringbone Hat, I knew I had stumbled on a perfect hat for my ensemble.
I now have some great winter wear. I even managed to wear my scarf to the Apple Festival at UBC yesterday morning while I wondered around tasting apples and eating scrumptious apple pie before lunch. Our good friend and neighbor Gill came along with us, so we also had very good company.
I can't wait for cooler weather so I can wear the hat and scarf together.
Pattern: My Herringbone Hat by Moonfrog.
Yarn: 1 and a very little bit skeins of Malabrigo Worsted in Azul Profundo.
Needles: 8mm Crystal Palace DPNS.I knit the herringbone band until it fit around my head in the way I wanted it to. When sewing the two herringbone ends together, I just winged it. It's not totally invisable, but it's close. I couldn't replicate it if I tried, sorry.
I also picked up more stitches than called for, but I can't remember how many. I do know it was one per edge stitch. I then knit until I estimated it was almost long enough, then followed the decreasing directions.The only thing I would change if I made it again is that I would start the decreases a few rows sooner. It's a bit of a tall hat.
