Project Inspiration - Low Laithe Hat

My third, and favourite, hat made from the book Coop Knits Toasty, Volume 2 by Rachel Coopey.

Again, due to my different yarn, gauge, and desired fit I started with 160 stitches, which resulted in just the fit I was aiming for.  I used a size 2 US for the ribbing on the brim and a 3 US for the rest of the hat.  After blocking the hat is about 21" in circumference, and 9.5" high, excluding the pom pom.


Low Laithe Hat made with HFS Merino 4 Ply Hand Dyed YarnThis is perfect for stashbusting, and in fact you’ll see bits from the first two hats I made from the book in this hat. I mixed yarn bases as well, although the hat is primarily HFS Merino 4 Ply, (all yarns were of similar fingering weight).  In total the hat weighs 60 grams including the pom pom.  I'd say about 25 grams is the ribbing, (top and bottom), colour, and the remainder of colours take between 5-10 grams.This is a fun project from beginning to end with just enough stitch variety to keep it interesting but not overly complicated. The crown decreases are particularly unique and creative.

Quick, easy, stylish, comfy, and warm...what more could want from a hat?
