Feldspar Crochet Hat
This pattern is a free download! Click here to get your copy.
Yarn: Blue Sky Fibers’ newly released Skyland- a DK weight luxury blend of wool, alpaca, and silk. Approximately 250 yards, so you'll need two skeins. I used the color North Star for my hat.
You could also use another DK weight yarn.
Hook: US Size G/6 4.0mm Crochet Hook - I recommend Knitter's Pride Dreamz because they are nice and pointy. This is especially useful on this particular pattern because we need to work into the ribbing.
Notions: tapestry needle, pompom (optional)
Skill Level: Intermediate
Construction: The ribbing of the hat is made first in a long strip, then joined into a circle. Then you will work into the side of the ribbing to start creating the body of the hat, using decreases to shape toward the crown.
A slouchy, feminine hat with openwork stitching. This hat uses a unique crochet stitch to create an effect reminiscent of rocky textures found in nature. Excellent for spring and fall when you want a fashion accessory with some warmth. A silky yarn with good stitch definition like Skyland really shines in this pattern!
