Squash Blossom Hat.




I recently had the opportunity to test knit this lovely hat by Irina Anikeeva, and I’m so pleased that I agreed to do it! I am so happy with how this hat turned out, and it’s the best fitting slouchy hat I’ve ever made. Because my hair is pretty straight, I find that slouchy hats tend to slide off, but the brim on this one is tight enough to keep that from happening.The pattern is now available on Ravelry, and I believe the designer is having a release sale if you are interested in purchasing the pattern.

I used Spud and Chloe Fine in “sidewalk” and I love the drape of the wool / silk blend. (Long-time readers might remember me buying this yarn at Purl Soho in NYC over three years ago on a trip with my dad!)

Big thanks to my friend Hermonie for taking these pictures for me!

What have you been knitting this week?

Linking up with KCCO and Yarn-Along.

      Thanks Alina! I love grey too.

  2. That looks like a perfect hat for fall! I love the twisted stitch detailing. Looks really lovely in that yarn. Definitely adding this one to my queue because I can never have too many hats. 🙂

    Hope you are well. I can’t believe summer is already over. It went by soooooooo fast. We should meet up soon to catch up. Once the craziness of school starting is over… if that ever really happens.

  3. Oh what a lovely hat – it’s a great pattern and the colour is stunning on you. Roll on the autumn if we’re going to have hats like that!

  4. Gorgeous hat, really suits you. Thanks for linking to the pattern, off to check it out on ravelry now 🙂
