This is what I’ve been working on instead of my Grandpa Cardigan. A free hat pattern, knit in Spirit Trail Vesta (100% superfine Merino, bulky and NOT superwash). I’ve knitted 5 hats so far (in 3 different colors), to create 2 sizes and two alternatives (with fold-over brim, and without). The pattern’s almost ready to go; it’s a quick, fun knit.
We’ll be calling it “Two Roads.” Caragh said the two different stitch patterns remind her of a straight road and a curvy road, and the Robert Frost poem (Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, etc., which happens to be one of my all-time-favorite poems). Since I was thinking the same thing, that’s what we’re going with. Pattern, and color photos, coming soon!
It’s great to have such a beautiful model in the house :-).
