Indie Design GAL: Hats

This is part of my on-going Indie Designer Gift-A-Long 2016 series, where from November 23rd – December 31st I highlight some patterns from my fellow designers also participating in the event! Each post will highlight at minimum 5 different designers and their patterns.

Don’t forget to join in the fun, we’re all over here chatting up a storm (when our fingers aren’t flying that is).

beeswaxBeeswax Hat by Amy van de Laar

From the pattern description
Bees are exceptionally clever creatures. Honeybees use their beeswax to create strong and highly efficient honeycomb structures, which they use for accommodation, food storage, and a place to raise their larvae. The ‘Beeswax hat’ celebrates the beauty of this structure.

Uses approximately 150 yds of DK weight yarn

Version 2Folklore by Faye Kennington

From the pattern description
Choose 3 of your favourite colours with highly contrasting values to blend in this folkloric and floral stranded toque. Worked in the round from the brim to crown, the hat is 18.5(21.25)”/ 47(54) cm around and should fit with 1-2” (2.5-5 cm) negative ease.

Uses approximately 300-450 yds of DK weight yarn.

sybieSybie and Marigold by Melissa Metzbower

From the pattern description
This hat is knit in worsted weight yarn, with an added optional ribbing to keep the hat on baby’s head. After felting, these can be personalized to fit any style! Go crazy with neon colors and buttons, or keep it simple with a muted color and plain ribbon. The options are endless!

Uses approximately 180-200 yds of worsted weight yarn (for adult sizes)

allotropeAllotrope Hat by Kimberly Voisin

From the pattern description
Allotropes are different structural forms of the same element. This richly textured hat with its lattice of cables reminds me of diamonds in knitted form as it uses cleverly placed purl stitches in place of more complex smocking to create a lovely textured effect. The sophisticated all over cable pattern is fairly easy to execute making this a great project to learn how to cable without a cable needle.

proseccoProsecco Hat by Elizabeth Green Musselman

From the pattern description
Prosecco is the Italian version of champagne, a festive, bubbly drink that I don’t just save for special occasions.
This hat uses two colorways of a gorgeous hand-dyed yarn to mimic that same playful, subtle effervescence.

Uses approximately 255-342 yds of sport weight yarn
