Here’s the second choice for our Winter Halfpipe Hat KAL. Remember this is in honor of the Winter Olympics. We will be casting on February 4th and finishing by February 20th. I styled this after the Ravellenics event. You can join us by commenting here, buying a kit and/or commenting in our Rav group here. The kit includes the yarn, a pompom and the digital pattern.

I love this r=Rhinebeck hat designed by Wooly Wormhead. It is so cute and striking. It is a slouchy hat that is knit with short rows. It takes 2 different yarns. This kit includes a full skein of the variegated yarn and a half skein of the semi-solid. Each set of yarn is one of a kind. Here are some choices
It is totally OK to change up a published pattern. Really? Yes! I wanted to make the Waiting for Rain shawl, but I wanted to use my worsted weight LiViLy yarn. It is so soft and squishy and has wonderful stitch definition. It is made from the wool of my Cormo sheep. So even though the pattern by Sylvia McFadden calls for fingering weight, I increased my needle size to match the yarn size and got started. The result is that this shawl is really large. I can wrap myself up in it. It is perfect for sitting by the campfire on a beachy weekend, when the nights are starting to get chilly. Another great aspect of increasing the size is that the knitting was quicker. We have kits available here in our online store.
If you don’t want an extra large, blanket type shawl, you can make this shawl with our Corrie Sock yarn and follow the instructions as written in the pattern. We have kits for the fingering weight yarn as well.
