this is the eyelet cap from vogue knitting, fall 2009. i knew i had to knit this pattern when i skimmed through the magazine the first time.
i definitely wanted to use hand dyed yarn but nothing with outlandish colour combinations. so my choice was the 6ply tweed from drachenwolle. and i haven’t been disappointed! the colours are great, it feels good and was a pleasure to knit. i’m a huge fan of purple/berry colours at the moment. i guess you can see that when you have a look at my recent projects 😉
on the photo you can see the 6ply yarn on the left.
i changed the pattern a little and made the ribbed part shorter as i didn’t want the hat to get too slouchy. i reduced the ribbing from 20,5cm to 17cm and it turned out just as i planned and hoped.
can’t wait for the next cold day to wear it! 🙂
