We’ve had a few, brief previews of Summer weather here in New England, and it’s got us all thinking about smaller portable knitting projects, because let’s face it, there’s no way we’re going to stop knitting just because the thermometer is topping out in the 90’s!
Evie Scott has designed the fantastic Oblique Hat for Valley Yarns in our super versatile Huntington yarn. Not only is this a stylish, and truly unisex hat, but it’s available in 4 sizes, with instructions for knitting the beanie style shown, or adding some depth for a slouchy version. The super stretchy band of ribbing seamlessly flows into an architecturally inspired spiral. A simple two-stitch cable twists upwards in columns to the crown, a great time to practice cables without a cable needle!
With a veritable rainbow of over 2 dozen solid colors to choose from Valley Yarns Huntington is a perfect choice for hats for the whole family. Extremely soft and machine washable this yarn has beautiful stitch definition and longevity. Who will you knit an Oblique Hat for, and in what color?
