Drizzle, a hat to wear in any weather
|A photo of the hat nearly finished, in the decrease section... this was a quick knit!|
Yarn: Mad Tosh Dk, Ink color on size 6 needles. I made the medium size hat.
This hat is an easy to knit accessory that will come in handy during the spring months here in Boston. When my hair goes to frizz in the humidity, I can pop Drizzle on and keep the bad hair day at bay. Mel has written the pattern with three variations of slouch and I chose the mid range of extra fabric. It is an easy pattern to follow and it has clear and detailed photos with charted directions for the easy two row lace design. Mel even gives a photo tutorial on how to block the hat to get the maximum effect of slouch.
I do fall hard when challenged to join a knit along. I recently gave the Drizzle hat pattern to a Ravelry acquaintance and in doing so, I won a free copy for myself. I have so many projects going that I assumed that it would have to wait its turn before getting cast on. Well, that was my thinking until I noticed post #85 on the SingleHandedKnits Drizzle Knit Together forum.... and I was hooked. It would appear that Amy Beth of the Fat Squirrel Speaks wanted our help in selecting the color for her Drizzle project. She has a voting post here.
