This is the Macklin Hat, my first pattern uploaded to Ravelry. I am so excited to finally have my work available online, and to share it with you all it is available for free. That’s right, FOR FREE!
I always find that I am drawn to hats with interesting stitch details, and what I love about this pattern is that it makes a very soft, waffle-y fabric. Being DK weight, it knits up
quickly (in fact if you were knitting monogamously you could make it in a day!), and uses exactly 100g of yarn (dependent on the size of your pom pom). This makes it perfect for indie dyed one-off skeins, commercial yarns, anything!
One of my favourite aspects of pattern design is definitely seeing where ideas can go – what colours are chosen, what yarn bases are experimented with, what modifications are made. I hope you enjoy the pattern and I can’t wait to see your version!
