Penelope Chunky Knit Hat
The Penelope Chunky Knit Hat Pattern is for a cosy, stylish, and versatile hat that may just become your favourite last-minute gift knitting! The hat is fully reversible and can be worn either as a beanie with the bottom rolled up or as a slightly slouchy hat when worn without a cuff. Either side has an interesting and colourful texture.
Super chunky alpaca combined with the thick and thin of the Wool Classica creates a fabric that is both warm and texturally interesting. Large needles mean the project flies off your needles. For most knitters it can be made in an evening or even during one movie.
The Penelope pattern incorporates basic Fair Isle stranded colourwork, so this is an ideal project for a knitter just starting to tackle Fair Isle or anyone wanting to perfect their technique. Penelope is also a great stash-busting project that will make use of those odd skeins, (and even half skeins), left over from other projects.
