Tweed-look Pom Hat

About: Catalog librarian Knit/crochet designer Blog: http://www.designsbykn.com/blog/

This tweed-look hat, shown in a red/brown combo, was an experiment in trying a new stitch pattern. It came out better than anticipated! The sample hat was knit in the round on a size 8 16" circular needle, from cuff to crown in basic worsted weight wool and wool-blend (red Patons Classic Wool and brown Queensland Kathmandu Aran.) After the K2, P2 rib, the simple tweed pattern is formed by alternating two rounds plain knit in the first color with two rounds K1, K1B in the second color. The crown decreases to 3 stitches which are knit into a long I-cord, with bouncy pompom attached on the end.  Pattern at http://www.piece-by-piece.net/Knit/tweed_look_hat.htm

    Nice, looks awesome. I would love to have one of these, especially with the recent cold weather down here near Los Angeles. Do you think you could make a blue and black one? That would be cool! You don't have to, I was just wondering.
