Norie Slouchy Hat in Road to China Light
"Regardless of the season, having a hat to keep ears protected and hair from flying around is a must" says designer Gudrun Johnston. Road to China Light makes the hat even more irresistible as it is extremely soft and lightweight. This will become your go-to hat since it feels so good and is a charming design. This design features the "Cat's Paw" lace design (a 6-row repeat), stockinette stitch, and garter stitch ridges. Combine these all together and you have a lovely pattern-striped hat. It fits the average head circumference of 20-22".
The pattern is designed for a DK weight yarn so we are using Road to China Light from the Fiber Company. The delicate blend of 65% alpaca, 15% silk, 10% camel, and 10% cashmere is amazing in this yarn. The colors have a subtle tonal dyeing effect adding a little extra interest to the project. The hat can be hand washed and dried flat.
The kit includes the pattern and the yarn. For this project you will also need:
- 16" circular needle in US size 5 OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE
- double point needles in US size 5
- stitch marker
- tapestry needle
