I am delighted by this pattern as it represents my design style so well. I love a clean look with an added element of interest. The Stacks Hat features a classic shaped beanie/toque with an added textural surprise. Instead of using the traditional ribbed stitch, I incorporated a twisted knit stitch. By doing this, the ribbing takes on a raised three-dimensional look.

 

The Stacks Hat is a quick project that is sure to keep you warm during the months of cold weather. It is a one skein project and the choices of yarn to knit with are endless.

Finally done and photographed!

Kōpekapeka Hat, by Francoise Danoy, is a pretty enjoyable knit. I love classic shape and  unfussy texture.  The zig-zag pattern keeps this easy knit from getting stale, while not making the hat look too busy. I can certainly see this hat becoming a fall favorite.

I did add one modification, which was that I added an additional zig-zag repeat to make the body of the hat a little longer. I like to pull my hat down real low when the weather gets cold.img_3795
