I am thrilled to announce that the Grasker Hat is live on Raverly. That’s right, you can go to Ravelry right now to buy and download your very own copy of this eye-catching Icelandic-inspired hat. It is such a fun hat to knit and to wear. The extra warmth from the floats of the colourwork and from a snug gauge make it warm and cosy! You will feel fantastic wearing it and knitting it.
The pattern is only $3.00 until midnight Eastern Time on September 21st, 2017.
The pattern comes in sizes from newborn to adult large, so you can make one for every member of your family or everyone you know for that matter.
Inspired by Icelandic designs, this hat was designed for a friend who saw an Icelandic style hat at a Halloween pumpkin based event and wished she had bought it. Accordingly, the hat is named after the Icelandic word for Pumpkin: Grasker.
Three colours of superwash light worsted weight wool are used to create this hat. It is knit brim up with a twisted rib for extra beauty and elasticity. Small needles are used to create a warm fabric with a tight gauge. It is especially important to swatch for this hat or to adjust for the stitch count if you are knitting the hat at a different gauge.
Note: The Grasker Hat pattern has charts in the original colourway, written instructions and alternative grey scale charts for working the colourwork in whatever colours you prefer. It is not necessary to print all the pages, read through the pattern and print only the pages that make sense to you.
