Wild Sage Hat

IMG_0002 (2).JPG

This hat was a test knit for Susanna Winter and to be honest I wasn’t very happy with it when it was complete.  What I felt was the stitch definition was not good and I suspect this was down to my choice of yarn.  I used an alpaca yarn that is very soft and has a halo so it was never going to give a good definition.  I was also comparing my hat to other test knitters and that was a bad idea.  I suspect that part of the reason designers have test knitters is to see how different knitters interpret their pattern.

Sitting back how looking at the hat I am a lot happier.   I love softness of the colours and the softness the yarn gives the garter stitch and lace contrast.  I knit the large size and it is comfortable.  The original hat had a pom-pom and I felt the hat didn’t need it.  So here it is – Wild Sage  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/wild-sage-hat

A very nice pattern – with or without pom-pom.
