Autumn weather is a knitter's favourite weather surely? Cold enough to pile on layers of handknits but not too cold and miserable to spoil fun or inhibit limbs from moving with too much bulk. A great hat is a must this time of the year so we were thrilled to see the Envelope Hat by Sephanie Gaustad appear in the lastest issue of Knit.Wear.
The Envelope Hat has some pretty interesting construction too. This hat is made from a scarf-like length of knitting. After binding off, the two ends are brought across one another and stitched to the center back of the crown.
The yarn called for is Fyberspates Scrumptious 4-ply/ Sport, our 45% silk, 55% superwash merino base. The sample here is shown worked up in the colourway 'deep chestnut' and at less than 1 skein to complete the hat, is a super quick and luxury knit.
You can purchase your yarn to knit Envelope Hat here in the Fyberspates shop or at your local yarn store and don't forget to pick up your copy of Knit.Wear Fall/Winter 2013.
