Make Dovera your crowning glory! It is an elegant little topper that uses four colors in several different color patterns. The crown shaping integrates cleverly into the color pattern for a polished look. The hat is done in the round, using the Fair Isle technique, following a large chart for the colorwork. The finished measurements are 26" around and 8.5" tall, including the ribbed band. The hat can be hand washed and dried flat. Brooklyn Tweed has assigned this Veronik Avery design a skill level rating of 4 out of 5 (adventurous intermediate).
Dovera uses Loft, Brooklyn Tweed's fingering weight yarn spun from US-produced Columbia-Targhee wool. It is a woolen-spun yarn with a soft hand and slight fuzzy halo after wet blocking. It knits into a lightweight but warm fabric. For Dovera, Loft is knit at 8.5 stitches per inch in color pattern.
The kit includes the pattern and yarn. For this project you will also need:
- 16" circular needle in US size 1.5 (2.5 mm) (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)
If you adjusted the size above to get gauge, adjust the needles below correspondingly.
- double point needles in US size 1.5
- 16" circular needle in US size 0
- stitch markers, including a unique one for beginning of round
- tapestry needle
Dovera is shown in Loft colors 131 Cast Iron, 117 Faded Quilt, 113 Sap, and 120 Foothills. If you would like your hat to be in these colors, simply order the kit above.
