This was a really lovely vacation knit. I knit the majority of this hat in the car touring around PEI with the boys. The island is beautiful and so is this hat. :)

We all love a good chevron and I can't get enough cool texture in my knits, so this design was an immediate home run for me. I was prepared to loose some of the texture in the speckles of the colourway that I chose for this hat but was pleasantly surprised at the amount of detail that still shines through even though it's a dynamic colourway. That's probably my favourite thing about the speckles that we've developed, from a distance they almost read as solids, but up close they are magic!

So, what do you think? Like this cool hat? Wanna knit one yourself? You're in luck! Drea Renee Knits is hosting a giveaway for a yarn kit featuring a skein of TFA PureWash Worsted in Stratus and a copy of this awesome Chevy hat pattern. Go check it out!
