Four Seasons Hats

Yarn: TFA Blue Label Fingering.

This was my very first for sale pattern! I believe it was also my first foray into knitting slouchy hats and charting my own colourwork patterns and man did I ever catch the bug. The fingering weight slouchy hat is the perfect vehicle for experimenting with colourwork. Just the right size to really go nuts with your motifs. I knit the autumn rose hat first and then just couldn’t stop. After all these years I still love these hats and wear the winter hat the most often. Something about this classic palette that just goes with everything.

I also LOVE those swallows on the spring hat and used it on a baby sweater which reminds me that I should revisit this pattern and put these awesome motifs on more knits! I kinda want to tackle a Strange Brew sweater with those swallows… Wouldn’t that be awesome!?
