Riverbend Garden Hat
Introducing a Yarn Spinner Story + Pattern!
Riverbend Garden: A Love Story. Dickie’s mom lived an unremarkable, but lonely life. Yet, she has time for one last story; of a dappled river bend garden, an empty marriage, a widowhood, and a student whose love transforms all boundaries.
This story pairs with a hat to fit everyone, from a small child to a grown man. It’s a fast project; knit with super bulky or a doubled worsted yarn. Make an extra to keep others warm; Dickie’s mama would want you to pass one along.
Use super bulky yarn or any combination of yarn weights knit together to get gauge. If you’ve knit short-row socks, you’ll recognize this hat’s crown “turns the heel” to match the head’s curve. If you've never tried a short-row heel, this is an easy introduction with big needles. Ideal for an advanced beginner or intermediate knitter, you’ll need to knit, purl, do yarn overs, k2tog or p2tog, work short rows, and do a three-needle bind-off.
