Description

This is a surprisingly quick and fun knit. While it might look like there’s a heck of a lot of purling going on there, but not so! The hat is knit inside out with very minimal purling.

This means a slight adjustment to the way the little mock cable is worked, but it's super easy, worked without a cable needle and the stitch pattern is very intuitive. I love watching the little lavenders grow as more of them are worked into the pattern.

The idea for this hat was first conceived as a chemo cap for a loved family member. My aim was to create one that fitted all the requirements of a sensitive scalp: the softest organic yarn possible, a gentle rolled edge on the band, slouchiness to minimise contact but yet provide warmth, and in reverse stocking stitch, so the softest side of knit fabric is on the inner. After knitting it I decided it was perfect for everyone really!

The sample shown was knit in WOOLganic 8-ply Organic Wool.
