I have quite a bit of Lion Wool left over from my gloves so I’m going to make a matching hat using the Marsan Watchcap pattern.
I found this pattern a year ago when I wanted to make a chemo cap for my grandpa who was going through chemotherapy treatment for leukemia. I used a super soft merino/angora blend for his hat and it was practically luxurious to the touch. I have a great picture of grandpa wearing the hat that mom sent to me via cellphone nearly a year ago but I can’t for the life of me get my phone to behave and save or send the photo (if anyone has any experience getting old photos off of a Sprint phone let me know!)
What’s interesting about this hat is the entire thing is done in a twisted rib. Knit one into the back of the stitch, purl one. It makes a really neat but simple pattern. I made a short video demonstrating the stitch.
Here’s a comparison of a regular k1p1 rib and a k1p1 twisted rib. Subtle, but the difference is there. Neat, huh?
