Description

This one is a collaboration with The Yarn Collective and LoveKnitting, featuring custom colors of Bloomsbury DK, from the brilliant Carol Feller. She’s come up with some beautiful shades, two of which are featured here - Moss and Surf.

As soon as I saw the generous yardage in one skein, I knew it was time to design a cap with fat, satisfying cables AND a deep, cuffed brim. This is perfect - a deep, soft, cozy hat, and long enough so the brim covers everything I want it to.

The bold cables contrast with the slipped stitch detail nicely, and as you approach the crown shaping, they narrow and cross inwards to taper off while the single ribs work their way towards each other. This creates curved lines that frame the tip of each cable in a delicate “star” at the top of the hat.

The Bloomsbury DK is soft and round and dyed in beautiful semi-solid shades, so the bold cables and slipped stitches were chosen to showcase both the yarn and the subtle color shifts without getting lost.
I also think this is a great unisex design that can be made more feminine or masculine, depending on the colorway chosen. (You can see how the mood of the hat changes between the Moss and the Surf, both beautiful but one deep and moody, the other bright and vibrant - both gorgeous!).
