Good pattern mojo

I love a good pattern. A well-written, error-free, can’t-miss pattern is a thing to treasure. Even more so when it is a hat pattern, which frequently fail me with gauge or sizing issues.

Enter the Hurricane Hat. Not only does it have a fun name, the spiral pattern is deceptively easy and gives an otherwise basic beanie a lovely bit of texture to catch the eye. Pair that with a delightful Malabrigo yarn and oh! what a wonderful knitting experience. No modifications, no tweaks, no do-overs: just a great hat that fits well, is soft, and even my teenage son finds “really cool”.

(His head doesn’t look like an egg in real life. It’s the angle, I swear.)

Knit with Malabrigo Rios on size 7’s. Used 45 grams of the yarn, have 59 grams left (another hat!!).

About wonkydonkey

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.
