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!!).
