Sometimes I get these impulses. When the Fountain Hat became a free pattern on Knitting Daily, I decided I needed to knit it…right then. Within one day I had ordered the yarn, in three days I casted on, and two days after that I had this:
Since spring is around the corner I thought a nice season transition hat was in order. Made out of sock yarn, this hat is a great light-weight knit. I love the shape of the hat and found it a really simple and quick knit. My favorite part about this hat is the gathered top giving it some volume at the crown.
This picture is a little fuzzy but you get the idea.
Pattern: Fountain Hat
Source:Interweave Knits Spring 08 Staff Project/Knitting Daily
Yarn: ShiBui Knits Sock Yarn, Mulberry (1 skien)
Needles: US 4 dpns
Mods: The only addition I need to make is to add adding some elastic to the ribbing to give it a more secure fit.
Notes: The pattern calls for 2 skeins of sock yarn but I only used one (and even had a nice mini-egg of yarn left over…mmm, mini eggs).
So there you go, my new spring hat. Impulses aren’t all bad I guess.
