The Snawheid Hat that WAS!
Updated: Nov 26
Well I did it! Gave in fully to the long swoon that was my desire to knit the Snawheid hat by Kate Davies.
In a previous post, we talked about the Newbee Knitters' experience leaving a yarn shop feeling deflated by the shopkeeper's dismissal of our dreams to run around NYC like winter elves in our stunning "snawflake" hats, telling us the pattern would take a month to knit and we're silly to even think of such a thing.
And this is the result. It's soooooo pretty, everyone should have one of these and another thing: It wasn't even a hard knit. Sure, there are floats. And some fancy dancing in the crown decreasing. That's the FUN of it.
Even more ironic in the face of the failed yarn-buying experience, the knit shown here was done will 100% stash yarn. That's right. Stash-blast fingering with leftover mohair to add a zip of twinkle-in-the-sun color and snowy haze.
