A quick knit as it has gotten so cold here in the Bay Area! I was inspired by this post at A Friend to Knit With and whipped up one of these hats with some amazingly soft Malabrigo Chunky . The pattern is Thorpe, freely offered by Kirsten Kapur. It’s constructed top down, which was interesting and fun. A super quick knit. My matching mittens will be made from the pattern in Weekend Knitting.
This was also my first time using the Malabrigo – I love it!! It is so soft and cozy. I haven’t taken the hat off since I finished it. I used size 9 needles and made the medium size.
